Judi Jetson, Chairman

Local Cloth began in 2011 when founder, Judi Jetson, then an employee of HandMade in America, imagined a new way to grow the craft economy employing the economic development strategies traditionally used in developing countries of import substitution and adding value. If we love local food, why not local fiber? Our mission is to support and sustain the regional fiber and textile arts economy and professions through collaboration, education, and innovation. We aim to grow the fiber economy in the southern Appalachian region, focusing on craft artists, fiber animal farmers, and small-scale fiber mills and processing businesses.
