Testimonials:

“I FibreShare because meeting new people is hard IRL #introvert”Β –Kristen S.

“FibreShare has done a great deal for me already as a fiber artist, and the fiber swaps are a perfect opportunity to literally give back to a community so rich in talent, knowledge, and love.” –Jessica F.

“FibreShare is like adult pen-paling, but better because you get to give and receive gifts!” –The Strand

“It is so much fun to be part of this! I have always loved picking out things for people and I absolutely love making people happy with (unexpected) gifts. As soon as it was over I knew I had a new addiction”. -Petra S.
