Wool Symposium 2014
Enhancing Diversity — The Ecology of Wool: Please join us for the Third Annual Fibershed Wool & Fine Fiber Symposium, November 15th, 2014, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm (and until 6:00 pm in the Marketplace), at the Dance Palace at 503 B Street in Point Reyes Station, CA. There will be informative presentations on breeding practices that build heirloom garments, plus predator- and pollinator-friendly practices that harmonize and blur the line between wild and domestic spaces, all bringing beauty and function to our fields and wardrobes. Plus hands-on demonstrations, and beautiful local fibers and handmade goods for sale. More information and ticket sales here.

The Fibershed Marketplace
The Fibershed Marketplace brings the farmers and artisans of our region together to provide you with raw fibers and finished goods that represent the fusion and artistry of the community. This online marketplace is an independent association of farmers and artisans within our fibershed who support the Fibershed non-profit organization by donating profits from their sales. Their goods adhere to the Fibershed criteria of local fibers, local dyes and local labor within the 150-mile radius of the Northern California fibershed. We invite you to enjoy the beauty of their 'soil to skin' creations.
