PROGRAMS AND INITIATIVES

EDUCATION

Local Cloth is an educational member of the Southern Highland Craft Guild.

The Textile Study Group is a monthly meetings, where we engage, study and discuss a wide range of textile subjects and invite everyone interested to participate.

Special Interest Groups meet at the Community Dye Studio

We offer year-round workshops for adults.


EXHIBITS

We present a biennial regional exhibit in odd numbered years and support local galleries' and guilds' efforts to showcase more work by local fiber artists.



FASHION SHOW

Local Cloth has offered 3 fashion shows featuring locally produced contemporary garments made with traditional, handcrafted, local materials. The purpose of this event is to promote innovative use of materials and resources available in our region and to spotlight the economic potential of supply chain collaboration.


MARKETING

We aim to connect communities to their fiber farmers and artists by creating events, publications and a web presence.

We offer an annual event, Fiber Feel Day, often offered early June.

This is a day of hands-on fiber shopping, learning and fun. Talk to local farmers, enhance your fiber skills, and take home the beauty of our region's artisans. Admission is free.

TEXTILE ENTREPRENEURSHIP
