Tips and Tricks of our Trade

The understanding of the many facets of Fiber Arts comes from books, journals, trial & error, our fellow fiber artists, and from experimentation. Many of us are guilty, in that our discoveries and/or shortcuts are not often shared - we assume that everyone else already knows it. NOT! The smallest thought or idea may actually be a goldmine of info for someone else. So on this web site, if your brilliant idea and/or discovery is not listed, its not known! Please share. Send your fiber arts related tips and tricks to be shared.
