Six Loose Ladies and our parent organization, Fiber Arts in Vermont, were created in large part to share and teach. We host a guest instructor twice each year who is an expert in her field. At other times, we learn from each other. Among the Ladies is a vast store of knowledge in a wide range of areas including spinning, weaving, dying, carding & blending, felting, crochet, paper-making, rug hooking, quilting, as well as knitting, of course. If you are seeking new skills or hoping to advance in your craft, there is a Lady who can help you.
