Textile Center introduces INTERLACE, a series of 8-week long classes geared toward building new skills for the 55+ age group – starting with rug hooking and embroidery! These sequential classes are perfect for beginners and those with no experience with fiber art. Join our creative community and bring your interest in learning a new skill in a supportive environment, taught by experienced Textile Center instructors. A culminating event for each class will be held at Textile Center to celebrate participants and their accomplishments.

Classes are 8 weeks, 3 hours per class.
Generous scholarships are available!
