In loving memory of Leah SK Davidson...
It’s with deep sadness that we announce the loss of the core of The Fibre Collective; of its heart and soul; its founder, Leah SK Davidson. She unexpectedly passed away Saturday, October 29th, 2016, surrounded by her family.
Her dream was to cultivate an environment to support independent fiber artists and share their artistry with the community. Her vision was far greater than a single event, a single idea, or for the benefit of just one, it was to benefit the independent dyer and to help struggling artists follow their dreams. As her team, we will continue to carry out her vision and goals for The Fibre Collective, and to fully realize her vision for The Fiber Community.
The Fibre Collective Initiative aims to provide a space for independent fiber artists from around the world to grow their businesses and share their talent. Leah's vision was to create a platform to support these artists, to help them get discovered, and to create a space for consumers to go to find new and exciting artists. Donations to The Fibre Collective Initiative will go to help fund The Fibre Collective in terms of advertising, transportation costs, entrance/booth fees, and small wholesale orders to a few select dyers. The Fibre Collective Initiative is managed as a completely separate entity from The Altered Stitch (which handles the sales of all yarn/fiber), and proceeds from the sale of any yarn/fiber purchased by The Fibre Collective Initiative, will be re-invested in The Fibre Collective for future dyers.
