Featuring special guests Kala Exworthy and Small Dog Weaving Mill
This month’s meeting will take a special focus on weaving, specifically, two ways to create local cloth. For folks who are looking to learn more about their options for creating local cloth for your outfit, this meeting will get you on the right track! Featuring, Kala Exworthy, a local fiber artist and instructor whose classes at the Weavers Guild of Minnesota include ‘Weaving to Sew’ (for floor loom and rigid heddle) and Marian Dahlberg of Small Dog Weaving Mill, a local weaving mill that can weave your local yarn into local yardage, TRF will show two methods for participants to create local cloth.
The event will also 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. Presentations by Kala Exworthy and Small Dog Weaving Mill will start around 1 p.m. with time for Q & A afterwords. The event is free and open to any who are interested in learning more about this challenge to explore ourregional fiber systems and tell its stories. TRF producers present will include:
