Fiber Arts

Hey There

We’re Chris and Teresa. 

2 Shepherds that joined our successful fiber arts businesses, purchased a 100 year old abandoned school building and are pouring all of our money, thoughts, energy and love into restoring this beautiful historical structure. We look forward to sharing our love of the fiber arts as well as many other arts with everyone who visits our future facility.

Yarn, Fiber, Felt Products, Needle Felting supplies and more . . .

All of our products are made and grown right here in North Dakota from our sheep and alpacas.

Nome Schoolhouse

The Perfect Escape!

The renovated schoolhouse is located on a peaceful piece of rural property, on the edge of Nome, ND. Open year round, the schoolhouse will be a haven for makers and doers. Home of Shepherd Industries, LLC, Dakota Fiber Mill and Bear Creek Felting, the school will be a future mecca of classes and retreats with a special emphasis on the fiber arts. A retail store, fiber processing mill and fiber herd will all be on site and our dream is to educate the public on the fiber process, all the steps between the animal to the finished product.
