While the majority of the hustle and bustle surround the big box stores this holiday season a little shop in Saugerties is helping families adorn themselves and loved ones with a bit of handmade beauty. You don't need formal arts training to step through the doors of Fiberflame. Though if you are interested in mommy and me or independent kid classes you will find quite a variety here in the Hudson Valley. At Fiberflame the experimentation, playfulness and exchange with others are the most important part of the creative process.

crafts at Fiberflame Walk in and be inspired to create. Cold winter days get a little brighter at Fiberflame where you can bring the entire family indoors to check out dozens of project samples, funky materials and quality tools. If you prefer to let your own creativity inspire you choose from a lump of clay, wooden frame, stretched canvas or more "blank" project ideas.
