Testimonials:

“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. … 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 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.
