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.
Merrily Corder (pictured with Rodney), Lynda Daniells, and Heather Apple joined later and continue to be avid supporters of the growing Fibreshed movement, volunteering their time to promote Fibreshed at local community events on the Sunshine Coast.
