September - FIBERSHED

 Day Guild  September 13, 2021at 10:00 am

 Evening Guild  September 14, 2021 at 7:00 pm

You may have heard of Watershed and Foodshed. Now you will be introduced to Fibershed.  Fibershed is a regional, national and international movement of Farmers, Fashion Activists, and Makers for a new Textile economy.  And yes we have a regional affiliate, Mountains & Plains Fibershed. It encompasses a 300 mile radius around Golden, CO.  It fosters collaboration among textile artists, designers, and fiber farmers, processing mills, suppliers and retail businesses in and around Colorado. 

Our presenter Anne-Marie Chmielewski  (meal EV ski) grew up raising Suffolk sheep in rural Montana.  The king of the flock was a large, very wooly ram named Los Angeles who patiently endured her riding him around the pasture. Anne-Marie loved Los and that was the start of her life with wool.  She was a part of the whole Farm to Fiber process from lambing to shearing and designing milled wool products, mostly blankets. Her current focus is promoting local fiber and natural dyes. As a founding member of Mountain and Plains Fibershed, she supported their mission.  Their goal is to create high-quality, natural fiber products processed with natural dyes that hold their beautiful colors, are durable, comfortable, wearable and stylish over time.

Tune in and become a part of this environmentally focused TEXTILE organization.
