A ribbon cutting ceremony was held Monday for the new Yadkin Valley Fiber Room, located at 230 Main St. in Yadkinville. The Fiber Room is a learning resource center for the fiber arts, primarily weaving and spinning.

“We’re really excited about it,” said coordinator Leslie Fesperman. Fesperman has been weaving for about 10 years now. She is self taught and has taken some classes as well.

The Fiber Room will offer classes for beginners as well as options for advanced weavers and spinners. Though they will not be a full yarn shop, they will offer some supplies for crocheters, knitters, and primarily weavers and spinners.

Classes at the Yadkin Valley Fiber Room will feature a wide range of projects from rugs to scarves to unique projects like felted beads and a weaving journal. For a full list of classes and workshops, visit www.yadkinarts.org/yadkin-valley-fiber-room/ or contact Leslie Fesperman via email leslie@yadkinarts.org or phone at 919-260-9725.
