The November 7th Monthly Meeting of the Northern Colorado Weavers Guild will feature a special presentation on Global Artisans’ Weaving Cooperatives and Their Future Sustainability. Weaving cooperatives exist all over the world, each one with a similar mission of preserving cultural traditions and history, a need to establish a sustainable economic base for the weavers and their families, and a desire to enter into the larger global commerce market. Marilyn Murphy, Managing Partner at ClothRoads, will take you behind the scenes at a number of organizations adding insights as to how they are preparing for the future. Marilyn will also bring along a curated selection of textile products that can be purchased.
Guests are welcome. Meetings include announcements, “show and tell”, and programs related to fiber arts.
