Fiber Indie eXperience Co-op

Sounds interesting doesn't it!  Well in short this is a venture between a bunch of little home-based businesses.  We formed it together as a way to help each other out and grow our businesses.  What follows this the general idea behind F.I.X.


F.I.X. is a group for co-op members and fans of their Etsy shops and websites.

Fiber Indie eXperience is a cooperative of Indie artists who work together for the benefit of the whole by helping, encouraging, and promoting each other. We don’t see ourselves as “competitors in business” but as friends of a like mind with a passion for fiber. Each member has a small business in which they sell their fiber and fiber related handcrafted items concentrating on quality rather than quantity. When you shop with a F.I.X. member you can be sure of receiving a beautifully handcrafted item and all our members genuine appreciation for supporting a fellow co-op member.

“According to the dictionary, ‘indie’ is an informal version of the word independent. Although this definition is accurate, the word has come to mean more. For many, it has come to symbolize originality and forward-thinking. By this definition, indie is any business or designer that is not associated with a large company.”


Pretty simple and basic isn't it.  Working together to get the job done.  I think Bob the Builder has the right idea.  (Sorry little ones around here, but it is true isn't it?)  So if you want to check it out or you have an Etsy shop and would be interested in joining us check out the following link, because we would be glad to have you.
