Fiber art refers to fine art whose material consists of natural or synthetic fiber and other components, such as fabric or yarn. (Wikipedia)

The Artisans Asylum Fiber Arts shop maintains an inventory of domestic and industrial sewing machines, tools and supplies, and some materials. We also host classes and a Fiber Arts social night.

Fiber Arts Social Nights

Every Second Thursday, 6pm-8pm

Come hang out and play with fibers at Artisan’s Asylum! This one night of the month, come in and use our fiber arts equipment machines and space for FREE. Learn basic knit and crochet skills in traditional and unconventional fibers, exchange materials, get guidance from experienced quilters, costumers, and crafters, or just bring your own projects to work on in the company of like-minded makers! No registration required, just show up! Join the Fiber-Arts@ mailing list for event updates and to connect with attendees and organizers.
