Past Outreach Projects

Each year we choose an outreach project to benefit people in need through fiber arts

Previous Outreach Projects included: 

2013- Rice Field Collective, a collaboration between knitting teachers and designers based in the U.S. and Europe, with indigenous people from the Ifugao region of the Philippines. The goal of the collective is to use handknitting as a way of maintaining the sustainability of life in Ifugao by training its villagers to make high-quality knitted items and other handicrafts.
