Greentree Weaving offers unique clothing, fabric, and accessories. All our products are hand-made under the direct supervision of master weaver Margaret Fischer.
The seeds of Greentree Weaving were germinated in the mind of nine year-old Margaret Fischer when she saw a weaving demonstration at a county fair in California.
The tree took root when Margaret began Greentree Weaving some ten years later. She worked out of her home until her weaving took over the house. Looms dominated every room; the kitchen was her warping station. Apprentices added to the already congested space.
In 1972, Margaret's home could hold no more. She opened Greentree's first store and workshop in Eureka, California. Needing more room again, she moved her studio to a barn in Petaluma, California. In 1987, she relocated to Cloudcroft, New Mexico. Then in 1993 Margaret and Greentree Weaving settled in Trinidad, Colorado.
As Greentree grew over the years, it expanded from one small workshop to four buildings in the Historic District of Trinidad. The year 2000 saw a big move from Colorado and addition of a stone farm house dating 1832 on Clifton Road near Yellow Springs, Ohio. The pastures and hayfields support a flock of colored sheep which supply yarns for our new Home-Grown Wool garments. Five dedicated craftspeople create the clothing that features fabric woven on hand looms designed and built by Greentree Weaving and antique power looms.
Greentree Weaving's primary market is juried Renaissance Faires throughout the United States. Margaret's wonderful sense of color, simple styling, and quality craftsmanship are a favorite with patrons of the Festivals.
