“I don’t know anyone who knits in real life. For me it’s been a great way to connect with other fibre crafters. My favourite part is creating a package of goodies tailored to my partner – it’s really a lot of fun!” –Wei-Lin
“I FibreShare because meeting new people is hard IRL #introvert” –Kristen S.
“I’ve always wanted to be part of a community that was driven by the same object, and without fear of competition, strove to help one another with encouragement and kindness in their respective journeys. The wonderful FibreShare community has done just that, creating a platform for all kinds of fiber artists from all over the world to share their fiber journeys, exchange yarn and supplies and so much more. 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.
“I love going through the @fibreshare feed and seeing all the wonderful shares! I see all the people who are touched deeply by the generosity shown to them. I love thinking and planning what I will get my partner. I go through my partner’s feed to try and find the right combination for them! FibreShare is love!” –Amy L.B.
“The fact that something like FibreShare exists makes me so happy! Being a part of FibreShare has connected me with other amazing fiber addicts who I’d otherwise have never met. These people have been so inspiring and they’ve pushed me to try things that I probably wouldn’t have on my own. It forces you out of your fiber comfort zone and I think that’s amazing.” -Kristie S.
