Scholarship Program
Fibershed is currently offering a scholarship to Sally Fox’s cotton breeding workshop on either July 26th, August 22nd or September 13th. In this small class you will learn how to prepare cotton flowers for cross pollination and then make the crosses, discuss important heritable traits, how to choose parents and flowers likely to survive handling and how to keep track of crosses made. Learn more about the class and how to apply here.

Becoming a member of Fibershed directly supports the creation of a regenerative textile culture within Northern California. Our public education, economic development, and community building programs directly support the emergence, and long term sustainability of textile farming & soil-to-skin artisanship.

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.
