Spring in New England!

Posted on April 11, 2017 by Fiber and Water | 0 comments

Why does Winter always feel so long!? We go through this every year, but one thing is for sure...When you experience the four seasons, it really makes you appreciate every one, but the next three are my favorite! Spring, Summer & Fall.

We love this time of year, because everything turns from brown to green. The sun stays out longer and the weather is warmer, but the most exciting part for Fiber and Water is show season!

This will be our 6th Summer doing the SoWa open market. It is a market that has helped mold our business to what it is today. It has launched numerous partnerships with other artists and companies and it has brought us directly to the customer. Working directly with the customer has helped us become a better company and we love them for that! See you soon Boston!

National Wine Day

Posted on May 25, 2016 by Fiber and Water | 0 comments

In honor of National Wine Day, here are some great wineries to visit in New England! Being from California, I thought Napa was going to be tough to beat as far as wineries go, but I was pleasantly surprised at the charm of some of these New England vineyards. These wineries have more of a rustic, farm like vibe which I absolutely love. The wines are delicious too, whats not to like?

La Garagista, Vermont 

Located on Mount Hunger, this farm to wine vineyard focuses on natural alpine and ciders. Not only do they grow wine but they also grow veggies, fruits, flowers and herbs which are all featured at their restaurant kitchen at "osteria pane e salute". If agriculture and farm life is your thing, this winery will not disappoint!

Shelburne Vineyard, Vermont

Known for their cold climate Marquette vines, these ice wines have been awarded the gold medal for the " best of" category in multiple competitions. Located on 17 acres, this modern country side vineyard has quite the views.

Cellardoor Winery, Maine 

Located in Lincolnville, this winery offers a more laid back approach and is known for their 200 year old barn. They focus on providing a warm, approachable and overall Maine like experience. Your guaranteed to feel like home here! 

Truro Vineyards, Cape Cod

Known for their pristine beaches and small boutique like restaurants, Truro is also home to a hidden gem of a vineyard. This family operated winery is known for some of their award winning cabernet franc and chardonnay wines.  A definite stop on the way to the cape!

National Pizza Day

In honor of national pizza day today, here are some mouthwatering MUST TRY gourmet pizza recipes.

I could eat pizza everyday, Im sure we all could, but that would not be the healthiest diet. Instead of the traditional greasy pepperoni pizza, I like to mix my pizza up and add some veggies to make myself feel better about eating it. Probably not all that better, but hey it looks healthy! Bon Appetit! 

Margherita Pizza

Caramelized Onion, Bacon and Spinach Pizza

Spinach Artichoke Pizza

 Buffalo Chicken Pizza 

BBQ Chicken Pizza 


Make sure and check out our tea towels, to make your dinner party complete!

Mother's Day Gifts

Posted on May 06, 2016 by Fiber and Water | 0 comments

Flowers are always nice on Mother's Day but how many years in a row can you hand your mother a bouquet of flowers and a card before it starts to lose its luster? If you're like me, Mother's Day can be a tough holiday for gift giving. You very much want to show your gratitude and love but how do you make Mother's Day more than a tradition that never changes? 

ANYTHING custom-made is always great. Whether you engrave a message on a special item or simply write your own card, it always means so much more when a gift is truly thoughtful. If your mother spends a lot of time in the kitchen, check out our tea towels. We have some great designs ready to go, or--if you'd like--have something custom made. This could be a quote, a small message, or perhaps a unique item that symbolizes something important in your mother's life. 


Personally, I've always loved the idea of a bunch of smaller sentimental gifts. A gift-basket or a gift-bag, stuffed with all sorts of trinkets and useful items, is a great way to show your thoughtfulness. Get creative with the wrapping of each, where opening each one turns into a fun activity for the mom who has done so much for you! The presentation is everything, of course. 

 From all of us at Fiber and Water, Happy Mother's Day!
