The Carr Fire Fiber Art distribution held on Saturday November the 17th was a success. Carr fire victims were free to choose from a wide selection of fabrics, patterns, sewing tools, books, yarns, knitting needles of every size and type, carded wool, looms, counted cross stitch and needlepoint supplies.
Sandy Scott, a local artist and clothing designer donated space and tables at her business, Stone Source, in Enterprise on Merchant Street for this event. The collection of goods to be distributed for local fiber artists started one month ago and donations came from as far away as Idaho and Southern California. Local people were especially generation with their contributions.
Organizers Sandy Scott and Joanne Lobeski-Snyder, who both lost their homes in the fire, were particularly disheartened by losing their working supplies of fabrics selected over decades, buttons, threads and tools. They realized that there would be other fabric artists who would be anxious to be creating again and decided to help.
While many people left with bags and boxes of supplies, many items are still available. Any person who was unable to attend is encouraged to call Joanne Lobeski-Snyder at 530-355-1793 or Sandy Scott at 530-945-6301 to make an appointment to visit the distribution center.
