As a fiber artist, Clements appreciates how “supportive and close-knit” that community is. She draws inspiration, in particular, from Adele Stafford, a weaver in California, who runs Voices of Industry. “She weaves fabric and then collaborates with designers and they make a clothing line. She works with Sally Fox’s farm, the same farm I get my cotton from, in Northern California. It’s such a wonderful labor of love and she does it so beautifully. I know the challenges that go into that. The glossy picture is not the whole story. I feel part of that community, like we get each other.”
