Six Loose Ladies Yarn Shop

six loose ladiesFiber Arts in Vermont is a non-profit membership organization that supports and encourages all creative fiber arts, provides a wide range of educational opportunities within this venue, coordinates resources, and fosters an atmosphere of communication within the fiber arts community.

Fiber people always seem to find each other. Such was the situation for a group of women who, driven by their passion for fiber, dreamed of organizing an official entity dedicated to the preservation of all the fiber arts. This group of passionate gals met every other week at each others’ homes to spin, weave, quilt, knit, crochet and yes, hook! One thing led to another and before they knew it Fiber Arts in Vermont was born.

Fiber Arts in Vermont, Inc. received its Certificate of Incorporation September 16, 2003. The original organizers were; Gail Brown, Micki Smith-Darnauer, Ann Dortch, Anne Gottier, Sandy Gregg, Suzanne Lawler, Paulette Martel, Wendy Regier, and Pang Ting.

The dream continued and the ‘what ifs’ again became reality when the retail space at the corner of Depot Street and RT 131, Proctorsville became available. The gals jumped on it and six weeks later, on August 19, 2006, celebrated the opening of Six Loose Ladies Yarn Shop! Our shop operates with an all-volunteer staff of fiber-holics. Classes are offered, special fiber-centric events are scheduled, and Thursday nights all are invited to Sit n’ Knit. Come and join the fiber-fun, we look forward to seeing you!
