Are you interested in being part of a group of individuals who take on the "one year one outfit" challenge? One year one outfit is a maker challenge where participants aim to make a locally sourced outfit in one year using the Fibershed principles of Local Fiber, Local Labor, and Local Dyes. The Three Rivers Fibershed is facilitating the formation of a group to support each other in working to create local outfits starting with the first of four events to help support folks interested in giving it a try!
The kickoff event will feature our Three Rivers Fibershed producers selling their locally grown and processed fiber for purchase to help you get the materials needed to start your outfits, in addition to a brief discussion around one year one outfit with a Q&A time, which will happen around 12:30. The event is free and open to any who are interested in learning more about this challenge to explore our regional fiber system and tell its stories. Producers present include:
Dresow Family Farm
Sunrise River Alpacas
Harvest Hills Acres
Autumn Larch Farm LLC
