About us

Minnesota Fiber Goods is your marketplace for handmade goods.

I knit because I like working with my hands, but knitting for other people is always the most satisfying. One of the ways I can make every piece really for other people is to give away the bulk of my proceeds. I recoup the cost of materials, and I pay myself a modest flat rate per piece. Beyond that, every dollar goes toward supporting housing and food insecure folks in my neighborhood.

 

I'm grateful for donated materials, and I accept any fiber content of donated material as long as it's clean. When I purchase materials, I buy 100% natural fibers like wool, cotton, linen, etc.

 

I'm also grateful for product ideas or suggestions. My aesthetic is timeless basics, and I have a great affection for color. I'm happy to help you develop or realize an idea you have. Minnesota Fiber Goods come to you as objects already cared for, objects ready for every day use, and objects we hope will become your new favorites.

 

Y'all are great. Thanks for your support.

 

I love to see my work getting used! Whether it's out on the town, out in the wild or just in the living room, tag me on social @minnesotafibergoods.

Everyday artistry. Made to be used.
