Fiberwood Studio is a specialty yarn store, weaving studio and fiber art learning center located in Milwaukee WI. The Studio opened in 1999 as a production studio and weaving yarn shop for owner, designer/weaver Barbara Chappell. Yarns for knitting and crochet, fibers for felting and a full range of classes soon followed. The curated collection of textures and colors, inviting atmosphere and encouragement from our staff of fiber artists will be sure to inspire your creativity.
I opened Fiberwood Studio to share my love of all things textiles. With advanced degrees in Textile Design, and professional experience in product development, production weaving and education it felt like a perfect fit to bring all those skills together. Whether I am in the Studio weaving, helping customers with design and technique in their projects or in the classroom teaching, every day is full of creativity and community. There is always something new happening!
To that point, new in 2021 is the addition of online shopping through the website for my line of Handweaving Patterns and Kits. For those looking for finished products, you can shop the Collection of Limited Edition Handwoven Wearables and Home Textiles.
It feels very “full circle” to the origins of the studio to present these new options as a fiber artist and designer. I look forward to sharing them with you online and in person in the studio!
