Creative with Clay
Charan Sachar of Creative with Clay is an artist whose work reflects his passion for the fiber arts, including spinning, knitting, and weaving. Charan highlights his handspun yarns with the use of color and texture. His fiber pursuits serve as inspiration for his clay work, decorating the surfaces to represent the textures he spins, knits, and weaves, while still keeping functionality and uniqueness in mind.
Jeri Brock Woodworks
Jeri Brock Woodworks is home of the ORIGINAL scrolled Turk. Jeri is a part-time woodworker and full-time fiber enthusiast. She is best known for creating Turkish drop spindles with cutouts, her original design concept. There are no CNC machines, laser cutters, or duplicating jigs in her shop. All patterns are hand-drawn and individually hand-cut using a scroll saw. We're all about the tools of the trade at Jeri Brock Woodworks, and everything is handmade.
We are a fiber arts company founded by Jill & Nicolas Duarte in 2013 with the purpose of using “new” materials and technology to bring a modern twist to the ancient fiber arts. In addition, one of our core beliefs is that tools should be a joy to use and a delight to behold. This unique combination is an extension of ourselves; we both come with a background in science and engineering, and we are both avid fiber artists, enjoying knitting, crochet, spinning, and weaving.
We are a small alpaca farm in Freedom, Indiana, established in 2011. We have an elite herd producing mainly dark and grey animals with extreme consistency and fineness. We use their fiber for spinning to make yarn, felting for craft projects, and many other uses. Out alpacas have very fine, silky fiber and we invite you to come visit our farm to see what alpacas are all about.
