Woven by Design, Boone, North Carolina

Cindy Long’s yarns are from mills in the Carolinas, keeping remnant yarns out of the landfills.

Only plant-based fibers (no wools) are used. These wick heat away from the body instead of holding it in.

Wood buttons are sustainably made by the last wood button manufacturer in North America.

Infinity scarves can be unbuttoned and worn as a regular scarf.

About Cindy Long

Family lore has it that Cindy Long has played with string since the day she was born. Twenty years ago she saw a sign in a secondhand shop: “This funny-looking thing $50.00.” That funny-looking thing became her first loom, That is how Cindy first got hooked on weaving.

Today this weaver from North Carolina’s High Country creates unique woven pieces, many of the yarns coming from mills in the Carolinas. Cindy shares the joy of weaving through teaching and demonstrating, all while telling the stories of those fiber mills.

Each of Cindy’s pieces is one-of-a-kind. Her scarves, shawls, ponchos, and capes are “Woven by Design and Spirit Inspired.”

Cindy’s work may be seen at several galleries in the High Country, including Gallery of the Mountains at Grove Park Inn, Asheville, NC; Rivercross, Valle Crucis, NC; and Blowing Rock Art and History Museum, Blowing Rock, NC. She also typically exhibits at Art in Autumn (the third Saturday in September), in Weaverville, NC, and at the Valle Country Fair (the third Saturday in October), in Valle Crucis, NC.
