Marjorie Fiddler


Marjorie Fiddler

Marjorie is a handweaver and dyer who creates one-of-a-kind wool rugs on linen warp. Her striking use of color and exceptional workmanship result in works of art that are equally beautiful adorning a wall or functioning as hard-wearing floor coverings.


Lois Gaylord
Lois Gaylord, an abstract artist working in fiber and mixed media, is a maker of connections. Her work focuses on spirituality and connections and like a multi-strand braid, they interweave creating the path to her present 'fiber-brained' endeavors.


Fine Gelfand
Fine has practiced her skills for over 50 years. She is focussed on surface design (dyeing, printing, painting on fabric) and working with felting. She now makes gala event hats inspired by Japanese dyeing techniques along with one-of-a-kind garments using felting and dyeing techniques. Fine also creates wall pieces, often using dried natural materials.
