This informal group of fiber fanatics meets each Friday at Chautauqua Artisans Market, 629 N. River St, between 10 AM and 12 Noon. Participants spin, weave, knit, crochet, quilt or just visit and gain inspiration seeing what others are working on. If you need help with a project or just want an easy-going fiber support group to visit, join us any Friday morning. All are welcome
