Fiber arts have been an integral part of our society for centuries
consisting of beauty and function. Tapestries were woven depicting
family trees and historic events. Knitted designs represented clans and
geographic locations. Crocheted designs adorned tables at special
feasts. The arts were passed down from mother to daughter. Today, fiber
arts continue to be practiced and enjoyed by designers, those who hand
knit, crochet, weave and spin commercially and by the hobbyist as well.
