Let’s keep our Textile Center garden blooming through the winter!  

We invite everyone — all ages and skill levels —  to participate in our winter community garden by creating a fiber flower using your favorite fiber art form or technique.

STEP ONE: Create your flower

Let’s keep the environment top of mind (it’s a garden, after all!) Please do your best to make sure your flower doesn’t have loose pieces that may fly away with the wind, and to use natural fibers in making your flower.

STEP TWO: Drop off or mail in your flower

Drop off or mail in your flower (anywhere from 2″ to 2 ft large) anytime now until February 16, 2024.

STEP THREE: Watch the garden grow!

We’ll awaken the garden by displaying all of our fiber flowers through the week of Feb 20-24, 2024.

Join us for a grand reveal and garden lighting on Saturday, Feb 24, at 5 pm. 

Need materials? Come browse our Textile Center Garage Sale for yarn enthusiasts February 2 – 4 at Textile Center!
