The Foldout Cat

The Foldout Cat is a multi-creative fiber business, run by Q (aka the Chief Feline) with the frequent and welcome assistance of partners Fiber J and Maker J. All three of us are fiber polyartists and teachers (Q occasionally practices estate-planning law on the side, because she's multibrained like that). We make and sell one-of-a-kind art batts using our unique Batt Buffet, featuring Merino wool, Angelina, bamboo, silk, and more, and our beloved Strauch carders. We also weave in the SAORI tradition, spin on a whole herd of wheels, hand-dye small-batch one-of-a-kind yarn and fiber, teach freespirited weaving and spinning, and sell our finished products plus fiber-arts tools and supplies. We believe that everyone's an artist and that giving people access to fiber-arts tools, supplies, and concepts lets them prove it to themselves. We don't believe in the Fiber Police :-). What matters is whether a maker enjoys what they're doing and likes the result. No two people create the same way. We embrace and encourage that free-spirited uniqueness.
