Introduction

Some consider yarn just string; however, it is much more than that. Because of the fiber arts, yarn can keep us cozy, toasty and stylish. Generations of families have kept warm with heirloom blankets that were created through knitting, crochet, or weaving. Sweaters and cardigans have seen us through many harsh winters. Toys created with these fibers have warmed and comforted the hearts of children. The list is endless of the many possibilities with the fiber arts. They include clothing, home decor, stuffed animals, accessories, and much more. I invite you to explore this LibGuide to learn more about this traditional, yet ever-growing field of the fiber arts. You will learn the history of fiber arts, the different creative outlets with yarn, its presence in the blogosphere world, and so much more.

This guide will direct you to library resources, instructional books, electronic resources, blogs, videos, and much more.
