Six Loose Ladies Yarn & Fiber Shop is the retail arm of the non-profit Fiber Arts in Vermont, Inc. We are a cooperative run entirely by volunteers. Our mission is to promote the fiber arts of Vermont and to this end we sell a wide variety of work from Vermont fiber artists in our shop. We carry spinning fibers, local handspun and hand dyed yarns as well as finished products, hats, mittens, cowls, sweaters and more. We also carry felting tools and felting fibers, rigid heddle weaving looms and other fiber tools. In addition to our local fiber products we have a wide range of commercial yarns available.
We are located in an historic building on the corner of Depot Street and Route 131 right next door to the Proctorsville post office.
The Cavendish Tapestry Project is a year-long creative project for people of all ages in the community: a tapestry, designed and woven by residents, and when completed, hung in public places in town. The Cavendish Tapestry Project will pay homage to our past as a mill town by inviting residents to create a tapestry for everyone to enjoy, both in the making and in the appreciation, for years to come. This project will have four stages:
IN OCTOBER, project coordinator, Wendy Regier, will offer free workshops at Six Loose Ladies Yarn Shop in Proctorsville for people interested in learning basic tapestry techniques. The workshops will begin on Thursday evening, October 8 at 6:00 and continue as long as people are interested. All materials will be supplied free of charge: instruction, a loom, wool to weave with, and other equipment. In return for the free instruction weavers will agree to help others learn these techniques. Sign up by emailing to email@example.com. There are 6 looms available.
IN NOVEMBER a call for designs for the community tapestry will go out. This year’s theme “Cavendish, Center of the Universe” will focus on what is unique about our town. Ideas could include special unsung places, people, events and local history. “Do you remember….” is the governing phrase! Send your ideas to Cavendish Tapestry Project Six Loose Ladies PO Box 166 Proctorsville 05153 or bring your suggestions to the shop on Depot Street Wed-Sun. A full scale drawing is not necessary.
JANUARY through AUGUST we will weave the tapestry. A portable tapestry loom will travel around the community to the school, library, town activities, fiber shop, bakery. Just invite us to come to your event by contacting us by email, phone, or on Facebook.
AUGUST/SEPTEMBER, 2016 there will be a celebration to recognize everyone who participated in the project, to display the first completed Cavendish Tapestry – and, maybe, to start on the next.
