The Sunshine Coast of British Columbia inspires creativity through its natural beauty. And none are more creative than the Coast’s fibre and textile artists. Affiliated with the California Fibreshed, BC’s Sunshine Coast Fibreshed was formed as a tangible way of recognizing the importance of being part of our local community. By emphasizing what is available along the100 miles of our coastline, from Langdale to Lund, Sunshine Coast Fibreshed promotes soil to soil with an emphasis on local first, and encourages everyone to look more closely at the creative potential of their own surroundings.

Founding members of the Sunshine Coast Fibreshed are: Heather Apple, Merrily Corder (pictured with Rodney), Lynda Daniells, Anne Harmer, and Deanna B. Pilling.
