Our Story

Homestead Fiber Arts is part of the Homestead Craft Village

at Brazos de Dios, a 500 acre farm on the banks of the Brazos River

devoted to sustainable agriculture and crafts. Here you’ll find weavers,

spinners and knitters, both young and old, carrying on the age old tradition

of creating cloth and other items for the home and family.

 

 

 

Come See Us!

The Shop, a reconstructed 1830’s barn, is filled with the rhythmic sounds

of the loom and the spinning wheel with myriad colors

of cotton, linen, silk, wool and our own alpaca/merino yarns

decorating all the surrounding walls and the hand hewn beams.

Our sale goods include everything from knitting needles

to looms with an emphasis on hand made items

and natural and home grown fibers. 

Classes

As a part of the Ploughshare Institute for Sustainable Culture,

we teach year-round classes in beginning to advanced spinning,

weaving, crocheting and knitting.  In addition to our regular curriculum,

we invite fiber artists, who are internationally known in their respective fields

of spinning and weaving, to our campus several times a year

to teach special workshops and seminars.  You may look on Ploughshare’s web site

for a complete schedule of all our classes.
