Rust Belt Fibershed aims to build a community which supports local fiber producers, processors, natural dyers, spinners, and weavers, knitters, crocheters, felters, clothing designers, home goods textile designers, and fabric/yarn shop keepers (and everything in between) in connecting to YOU, the consumer!
Supporter membership is for those in our fibershed region who are not producers, yet want to support an be apart of creating a fibre economy in the Great Lakes Regions of Eastern Michigan, Ohio, Western Pennsylvania, and Western New York. Community membership creates opportunity for engagement with producers and access to all workshops, products and benefits of the fibershed.
Supporter membership is a great way to get involved, and to learn more about what a fibershed is and why it is important. The only guideline for community members is that they reside within the Rust Belt Fibershed region (250 mile radius of Cleveland, Ohio).
