Fiber Friday – The Fiber Friday Group, also known as Fiber Frogs, is currently meeting every Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Tehachapi Treasure Trove. Members of the group knit, crochet, weave on looms, weave baskets, embroider, dye silk, felt, needle point, make paper, do origami and more. Some even paint. They have nicknamed themselves the Fiber Frogs because if they make a mistake they have to "rip it, rip it, rip it."
