Fab 50 Vendors!

We are just over 2 months away from our Fab 50 party here at the factory, and we cannot wait celebrate with everyone! Keen observers might have noticed this update a few weeks ago, but we recently announced the select group of vendors who will be participating in our small market.

Here’s our list of vendors, and a little but more about them!

Brown Sheep Company, Inc. is a family owned and operated yarn spinning mill, located in Mitchell, NE. Makers of the ever popular Nature Spun yarn.

Handweavers Guild of Boulder

The Handweavers Guild of Boulder was founded in 1964 by a small group of Boulder women dedicated to the art of hand weaving. Three years later, in 1967, the official name of Handweavers Guild of Boulder was adopted together with a set of by-laws still in use today.

The Hummingbird Moon

“Here at the Hummingbird Moon I love to create bright, magical and unique colorways on super soft yarn and wool rovings. When I’m not creating new colorways on fiber, you can find me at my spinning wheel making more magic or sitting by the mountains with my knitting needles and some yarn.”

Northern Colorado Weavers Guild

We are a nonprofit group dedicated to sharing knowledge and skills in all aspects of the fiber arts. Our group was founded as an educational guild in 1973. The first meeting was held at a member’s home in Fort Collins, with 27 people attending. Today, the Guild has approximately 120 members.

Thrums Books and Cloth Roads

Thrums Books is part of a business collective which also includes both its parent company, Thrums LLC, and its sister company, ClothRoads, a global textile purveyor.

Those of us involved in these endeavors worked together at Interweave Press for many years, honing our skills and forging a tight-knit team. The years have taken us in different directions, but the core relationships remain, and the core commitment to supporting indigenous textile artisans worldwide. Some of us make books, some of us source and sell wonderful cloth. Words and threads. It’s all in aid of helping sustain time-honored traditions.
