Rebecca, you've been very inspiring.... we do use your newsletters for our kids education.
Virginia Ameztoy
01:13:10
I like to know that too..
Suzanne Watzman

What can we do, how do we do it, if we are based in an urban environment?
Lyn Hart
01:13:18
How exactly are the sheep ranches absorbing carbon?
Rebecca Burgess

For teachers: here is our curricula~ https://fibershed.org/programs/education/educational-curricula/
Kate Ellis
01:13:31
Do you know if there are any fiber sheds growing flax?
Rachel Bordeleau
01:13:32
Do you see a possible future where mills and fiber production returns to the US, possibly as a way to keep jobs in the Southeast (and elsewhere) as the country moves away from coal mining and reliance on fossil fuels?
JULIE Frederick

As a retailer, I am trying to reach out to local people to supply our store with local goods. I am finding it difficult to find goods that are wholesale. Knitting yarn is far ahead of cloth. So, how do we make it easy for retailers to buy from local producers?
Teresa Cabellos
01:14:05
Do you know if there is any fibersheds in Europe, near Spain?
Samantha Verrone
01:14:07
Love how you got a major clothing manufacturer to be part of the solution. Do you know about the cotton industry here? I was able to get 100% organic american grown/loomed/finished cotton from one local source but he no longer has that relationship. We definitely need a global economy of local businesses. Thank you for your wonderful work

I live in NJ, and teach natural dyeing and mending to almost exclusively children (elementary school thru highschool). How would you suggest framework to continue on a bigger scale?

What an amazing Project—thank you so much. And so much thought provoking material. I will be reading your latest book. As a SoCal resident I try for local fiber materials including my own hand spinning/weaving/dying. I applaud you.

I’m currently reading Common Threads, and it’s making me think about working even smaller - on the neighborhood level/city level through community garden for both food and fiber plants; is there is way to connect food shed and fiber shed?
czarina den ouden lobo
01:18:34
Common Threads....that's our Sharon Kallis….amazing community artist.
Sallie Marshall
01:19:52

Caitlin McCall
01:22:28
Connecting to the college thread, I am teaching an undergrad textiles course this fall. We are fully remote, so I am looking to overcome the challenge of engaging my students in a virtual classroom. Are any of you at Botanical Colors or at the US Fibershed Chapters available/willing to guest speak? Many thanks :)

Hi Everyone! I am faculty in the graduate program at the College for Creative Studies (Color & Materials Design) in Detroit and would love to connect with anyone in the area that would be interested in speaking to the students about local supply chains and potential for a socially distanced, on-site visit to a farm, factory, etc. And, of course, Rebecca, we would love to have you come speak! Thank you so much for everything. You are amazing.
