Summer 2017 Twisted Fiber Art Club:
Bread and Roses
“The worker must have bread, but she must have roses, too.” -Rose Schneiderman
This phrase inspired a movement, a poem, a song, and more. It was used to address the working conditions and wages afforded workers, particularly women, in the textile industry. She believed that they had a right to something more than subsistence living.
We, as a woman owned and operated business, appreciate what Ms. Schneiderman did for so many, the affects of which are still felt today. In homage to this visionary we bring you our “Bread and Roses” club. Each collection tailored to a palate reminiscent of its name.
Packages and Pricing
The Bread and Roses Club will open for sale on Friday, June 23rd at 12am EST. There are a limited number of spots available. Club sales will remain open until the club is full. You can take a peek at the different packages but they won’t be available for purchase until the 23rd.

Vintage style and war era victory gardens, the simplicity of the minimal has a beauty all its own. This collection has been washed with a sepia overtone and represents the style and practicality of our nation’s past. Necessity and utility drive the soft colors and overall feel of this collection where function creates design.
This Collection represents the generosity of Schneiderman’s vision. A rich palate of vibrant saturated color plucked from the wardrobes and ornaments of the fortunate. Beauty, finery and individuality weave their magic in this group of colorways.
Here’s How it Works:
- There are two Color Inspiration Boards linked through the pictures above. Each board represents three colorways. We design first then find photos with the same colors and general “vibe”.
- Colorways are designed exclusively for this club, and won’t be available to the general public for at least a year (often never!).
- The colorways remain a surprise until you receive your package each month.
- Your package is based on what you select from a variety of our most popular yarns and rovings, as well as which Inspiration Board you choose. There are choices in Striping, Evolution, Roving, and several Variety packs.
- New options this club! We have NEVER BEFORE SEEN BASES in several of our packages and a CREATE YOUR OWN CLUB where YOU CHOOSE YOUR OWN PACKAGE!!!
- Twisted Samples! This option is your ticket to post club bliss! The Sample Membership is a fantastic way to preview all the colorways and join in the anticipation of a monthly surprise delivered right to your door.
- The Sample option is also available as an upgrade to your Club. Each monthly shipment will include 4 samples to allow you to preview all club colorways on different bases prior to Post Club.
