Range Fiber Arts Guild Talk

Thursday, November 3, 2016 6:30 p.m.
Virginia, MN

Join me up north for the monthly meeting of the Range Fiber Arts Guild. I’m very excited to visit the very accomplished group of fiber artists and share stories from across the Midwest. I’ll also have the new Fiber Art Almanac book with me to sign and purchase and hopefully one of the quilt makers will be able to join me.

Here’s a summary of my talk.

Midwest Textiles: A Photo Journal Tour

Midwest Fiber Arts Trails Founder, Jenny Wilder, will share stories and photos of her fiber arts travels around the Midwest. From traditional quilting arts, rug hooking, felt making, needle arts and knitting to contemporary art quilts, weaving, and mixed media. Come and be inspired by the Midwest’s rich textile heritage and today’s dynamic fiber arts community.

The mission of Midwest Fiber Arts Trails is to honor the Midwest’s rich textile heritage and celebrate and promote the work of contemporary fiber artists.

The Midwest Fiber Arts Trails are where fiber enthusiasts can find useful information, resources, insights and inspiration for their own creative expression, opportunities to participate in fiber arts activities and to plan fun trips around the Midwest.

The Midwest Fiber Arts Trails and Fiber Art Almanac:
• Celebrate the synergy between place and textile art and design
• Honor the influence of historic textiles on contemporary work and future vision
• Encourage discovery and growth in self expression
• Foster creativity and collaboration
• Change as a reflection of the community
• Welcome everyone.
