This is the story of ten weavers living and working in Oaxaca, Mexico.
Linda LaBelle is the owner of The Yarn Tree (www.theyarntree.com), an author, photographer and fiber artist specializing in natural dyeing and weaving. With a strong belief that you must respect the craft, materials and abilities of the cultures with which you are interacting, Linda is happy to share her knowledge with those less fortunate. After returning from Rwanda in 2009, she started the project Stories of Hope (www.madderlane.com). The project is two-fold; the first to teach craft-based skills to those in need, secondly to archive the experience through photos and interviews telling the stories of the people she visits. When not traveling, Linda lives in Asheville, NC.
