The following is a listing of members interested and willing to teach and or demonstrate fiber arts classes/demonstrations.  This would include spinning of yarn, weaving, sewing, felting, crocheting and embroidery just to list a few of their talents.  Each member has listed their hours of availability, the art they are willing to teach or demonstrate, and the cost of their services.  Most of the members are willing to volunteer for a small fee donated to the Piedmont Fiber Guild and their fuel/travel expenses.  If you have a Scout troop, boy or girl, or 4-H members in need of something extra special to learn, contact us!  Fiber is our business and pleasure!
