Local Cloth is an educational member of the Southern Highland Craft Guild.

Special Interest Groups meet at the Community Dye Studio

We offer year-round workshops for adults.


We increase access to local textiles and fiber for members of our community and visitors to our area through a retail shop located in Asheville's River Arts District. We also participate with booths in the Southern Highland Craft Fair in the fall, and in the Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair.

Southern Highland Craft Fair



We present a biennial regional exhibit in odd numbered years and support local galleries' and guilds' efforts to showcase more work by local fiber artists.


Local Cloth has offered 3 fashion shows featuring locally produced contemporary garments made with traditional, handcrafted, local materials. The purpose of this event is to promote innovative use of materials and resources available in our region and to spotlight the economic potential of supply chain collaboration.


We aim to connect communities to their fiber farmers and artists by creating events, publications and a web presence.

We offer an annual event, Fiber Farmers Day often offered in the spring or fall. This is a day of hands-on fiber shopping, learning and fun. Talk to local farmers, enhance your fiber skills, and take home the beauty of our region's artisans. Admission is free.

Farm and Studio Fiber Tours


We have established a Community Dye Studio and advocate for a regional Fiber Cluster Study to help build the infrastructure to move fiber along the value chain.
