1 year, 4 Midwest Fiber Arts Trails' Weekend Events


The Midwest Fiber Arts Trails' events keep getting better and better and this past weekend was incredibly inspiring and productive.

My home trail is the Threaded Streams Fiber Arts Trail; since March 23, 2017, I have had the honor to participate in 2 events in Baraboo and 2 others as a guest artist for the Weaving Waters Fiber Arts Trail Tour in MN and the Cedarburg Spur Fiber Arts Trail in WI.

One thing I know for sure is that Fiber Art is as alive and crucial to our communities as is our need to breathe. Fiber is at the heart of what we do and believe in, both an engine for change and future opportunities to carry forward traditions and human connections. And we will receive our place in history as an Art form that speaks of our heritage in and outside the USA. 

It is imperative that we continue our participation and collaborative efforts to ensure that Fiber/Textile Art continues to preserve and expand our momentum as a collective group, filled with talent and plenty of heart. 

I hope you catch a trail event in the next couple of months; they are everywhere and filled with the heart and talent of each community. 

If you are curious, please visit Midwest Fiber Arts Trails website and you will see listings for artists, shops, museums and galleries; you will also learn about the origins of this Movement.

Thank you to all my students and friends for your continued support and our hosts, Ardyth's Sew n Vac Shoppe in Baraboo and River Arts Inc. Gallery in Prairie Du Sac. 

My events are already posted for 2019 if you are curious!
