Mission Statement

The Steel City Fiber Collective (SCFC) is a community-based facility meant to bring the joy and camaraderie found in the fiber arts world to everyone in the Pittsburgh area. We offer instruction, equipment, and expertise in all areas of the fiber world, including spinning, weaving, dyeing, knitting, crochet, needle-felting, and fiber preparation. The SCFC provides a warm, inviting, open space where hand crafters of all stripes can collaborate, learn, teach, and grow.

Company Information

The Steel City Fiber Collective is a community space that provides the ideal location to work on any and all fiber art projects. Members will gather to collaborate on projects, share their experience and expertise, and craft with others who share their passion.

With the goal of uniting fiber artists of all kinds, the SCFC will provide the tools necessary for a variety of projects. Members will pay a monthly or daily fee and in exchange they have the opportunity to use all of the tools we provide, as well as the resources to learn how to use them effectively. Classes for all ages on various fiber skills will be available to both members and non-members, and social events will celebrate and strengthen the fiber art community of Pittsburgh.

Members and other local artists will also have the opportunity to sell their work in the SCFC’s gallery shop. The shop will show all of the visitors to the SCFC how beautiful and valuable handmade items can be, and will encourage beginners to learn new crafts.

  1. Great concept, ladies!
    Do you have a space yet?
    How often and where do you meet?
    How much is your monthly fee?

    Also, do you need any equipment?
    An acquaintance, a relative of Walt Disney, has a top-of-the-line computerized knitting machine that cost thousands new BUT she is willing to sell it for $500. It has instructional videos and books, and she has yarn to go with it.

  2. just heard of you through heather at kid ewe knot. i have a yarn shop just north of greensburg. would like to be involved somehow even though i’m further away. more info please!
    i am also hosting a fiber event similar to the indie knit and spin in april 2016. just getting it organized.

  3. Hi! Interested in helping out with your project in setting up your maker space. I’m a freelance creative and also a mobile notary. Let me know if you need any help! Thanks!

  4. Just as an FYI and maybe a lead on a space in Highland Park – Catherine Batchko of “Cut and Sew Studio” is looking to expand. I don’t know if her space is available. There is a small parking lot and it’s very close to the bus line.
