Become a Member

Becoming a member of the Gold Coast Fibershed directly supports the creation of a regenerative textile culture within Southern California.   Funding derived from memberships will provide a web presence to drive traffic to member websites and to Fibershed events listed on the site.

Gold Coast Fibershed Events are sponsored and run by members who wish to host a Fibershed event- a fair, festival, class, workshop, marketplace.  The member decides what the features of the event will be, keeping in mind the benefits of membership.  Events educate members and the public, invite membership in GCF, and help all those involved to enjoy the benefits of natural, local fiber and products.

While the greatest benefit of membership will be for those who have an active website, we welcome memberships from those who simple desire to support the ideology of Fibershed.  All members will benefit from the same list of perks, if applicable.

Membership includes:

  • Contact information listing on the GCF website
  • Listing of individual and hosted Fibershed Events on the GCF website (events will be listed with a link to host member's website for details)
  • 15% discount on GCF classes
  • 15% discount on booth space at GC Fibershed Fairs and Festivals
  • Gold Coast Fibershed Logo file to put on member's website


Membership begins January 1 of each year and is renewable annually.  Memberships purchased in October through December will be prorated.
