Piedmont Fibershed Community Meetup
February 17 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Get together with other folks interested in building a sustainable regional fiber economy in central North Carolina!
This meeting will be held at Mill House Fiber Studio, the workspace of textile artists Kelly Walsh and Courtney Lockemer. Their studio is one of several historic mill houses in the Old West Durham neighborhood, built in the early 20th century as part of a mill village for Erwin Cotton Mills.
At this informal meetup, you’ll have the opportunity to meet others in our community passionate about local fiber and textiles, discuss Piedmont Fibershed’s ongoing projects, and share your ideas. You are welcome to bring a fiber craft to work on if you like.
Anyone interested in the fiber and textile economy and sustainability are welcome: farmers, artisans, educators, retailers, community organizers, hobbyists, etc.
