With the frenzy of holiday shopping (and advertising), it's important to remember that we are not solely consumers. By supporting local farmers and artisans, we add value to our regional textile economy -- we are collaborators. Thank you for supporting the people and place-based culture of your fibershed!

For Emily Cunetto, the most critical part of her knitwear design process is when a clear vision of the piece arises from the material. To begin, she says, “I go for a fiber that speaks to me in some way.” From there, her designs are “a series of experiments, with this stitch or that needle” and then “it’s all about math once you get the swatch worked out.”
