WHAT WE DO

The Made Here Natural Fiber Studio was launched to share our passion and love of natural fiber arts.  As one person said, taking fiber from an animal or a piece of string, and turning it into something I can wear is a joy.  That joy has turned fiber arts like knitting, crocheting, weaving, and felting into some of the most popular hobbies in the United States.  These are forgotten crafts that are making a resurgence as everyone wants an eco-friendly way to connect their lives and hobbies with the natural world around them.  We’ve created a facility where fiber artists of all types can teach, people can learn, and make memories while they make their own one of a kind fiber products.  What better location to explore these forgotten arts than a log cabin hand hewn in the 1790’s.  Experience the JOY of learning fiber arts, in a fun historical environment, working together with friends and expert teachers at one of our “Make and Take” classes.

KNITTING

Knitting is the process of inter-looping of yarns or inter-meshing of loops. It is a method by which yarn is manipulated to create a textile or fabric, often used in many types of garments.

CROCHETING

Crochet is the process of creating fabric from a length of cord, yarn, or thread with a hooked tool. The salient difference between crochet and knitting, beyond the implements used for their production, is that each stitch in crochet is completed before proceeding with the next one, while knitting keeps a large number of stitches open at a time.

WEAVING

Weaving is an ancient textile art and craft that involves placing two sets of threads or yarn made of fibre called the warp and weft of the loom and turning them into cloth. This cloth can be plain (in one color or a simple pattern), or it can be woven in decorative or artistic designs, including tapestries.

WET FELTING

In the wet felting process, hot water is applied to layers of animal hairs, while repeated agitation and compression causes the fibers to hook together or weave together into a single piece of fabric.

NEEDLE FELTING

Needle felting is a method of creating felted objects without using water. The special needles used to make 3D sculpture, jewelry, adornments and 2D art have notches along the shaft of the needle that catch fibers and tangle them with other fibers to produce felt.

SPINNING

Spinning is the process of creating yarn (or thread, rope, cable) from various raw fiber materials. It is the twisting together of drawn-out strands of fibers to form yarn, and is a major part of the textile industry.

MEET THE TEAM

Kathy Klay and Melissa Reeder are the founding team at Made Here Fiber Studio.  We were brought together by a shared passion for both fiber arts and for creating experiential opportunities for people to learn.  Einstein once said ” I do not teach anyone I only provide the environment in which they can learn.”  Our greatest desire is to create that environment where people can learn the joy of fiber arts while having the EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME!
