Getting Crafty: Vonda's quilt was made by her mother, using the samples she made in a tye dyeing class taught last year by Long-Schleif.

For the crafty individual, Goldendale's Fiber Art Studio offers a great opportunity to expand into a new creative medium.

Fiber Art Studios in the heart of downtown Goldendale is owned by Betty Long-Schleif. Long-Schleif spent her career working in museums; 23 of those years were spent at the Maryhill Museum of Arts.

Upon retirement, having always been interested in fiber arts, Long-Schleif decided to open her studio to the public offering small weekly classes at affordable prices. She teaches some of the classes specializing in sewing and dyeing. Many other classes are offered with different instructors who specialize in anything from making paper, weaving, basketry and much more. Her studio also offers a selection of beads and organization tools for the crafter. The shop, located at 118 W. Main Street, is open Wednesday through Saturday.
