Help us grow our Flax Project!

Our Flax Project keeps moving along in unexpected and exciting ways! I'm honored to continue working with Emma de Long (Kneehigh Farm) to expand this project with the expert guidence of Fibrevolution. The more we learn and experience and the more connections we make, the closer our dreams of revitalizing domestic linen production become. 

Choosing natural, locally grown fibers is an important choice for the environment; such fibers can be an integral part of regenerative farming systems, help build carbon stocks on working landscapes, and improve regional environmental health.

Thank you - my community of customers, textile artisans, activists, and farmers for being so eager to support these efforts in textile development. We couldn't do it without you and the others we've connected with across the country pursuing similar work.

Our flax project has appeared in the local press, is generating the support of several local growers and small business owners, and was presented at PASA (Pennsylvania Association of Sustainable Agriculture). We're excited to expand our commitment to our local economy and textile supply chain. While this small investment in our local textile economy is a great new initiative for my business to explore, growing flax for linen is a huge undertaking and we are counting on your continued support to make this happen. See a brief history of our project below. Visit our new Pa. Flax Project website for ways to get involved, and please, consider becoming a Flax Friend.

looking forward with gratitude,
