About The Fiber Closet
The Fiber Closet exclusively operates as an online store.
Cheryl Moreo’s passion for fiber arts has been ingrained since her early years on a quaint farm, where she tended to a diverse array of animals including chickens, goats, rabbits, cows, pigs, and horses.
She participated in 4-H and eventually became a leader in the organization. Within the realm of 4-H, she found pleasure in activities such as sewing and cooking. Additionally, 4-H provided her with valuable lessons in the realm of record keeping.
Upon her marriage, she relocated to a more compact farm where she tended to dairy cows, geese, and chickens. Additionally, she cultivated a small orchard, vineyard, and garden. Following the manual milking of the cows, she skillfully crafted cottage cheese while churning out delectable ice cream and butter.
Cheryl dedicated years to volunteering at Billie Creek Village in Rockville, Indiana, showcasing her expertise in knitting, yarn spinning, and rug weaving.
After concluding her career in social work, Cheryl established “The Fiber Closet” in Rockville, Indiana’s town square. Her shop specialized in offering yarn and materials for knitting, spinning, and weaving and providing instruction for various fiber-related courses.
In 2017, Cheryl faced a double blow – a battle with breast cancer and her husband, Mike, experiencing a heart attack. These occurrences prompted them to reassess their lives, leading Cheryl to decide to close her physical store in Rockville. As a result, The Fiber Closet now operates solely as an online shop.
Cheryl shares her expertise in various crafts, including knitting, weaving, crocheting, and other creative pursuits, alongside promoting a healthy lifestyle through her blog CherylMoreo.com.
