Fibershed project

Rebecca Burgess from Fibershed is an amazing native plant dyer, teacher and fiber artist. My heart is racing with inspiration. I found her flipping through web pages quite a long time ago and have been following her since. I feel so grateful to have found her. I have met her once in person and plan to get over the hill between us and get to know her more. She is doing such amazing work. I hope she will allow me to be a part of it.

"Our fibershed challenge is to create a bioregional wardrobe that will be lived in for one year and made completely from fibers and natural dyes that are solely sourced within a geographical region no larger than 150 miles from my front door."
