Homestead Fiber Crafts 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.
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.
