Sustainable Quilting and Textiles Basics
Earth Day Talk – Sustainability on Quilting and Textiles
April 22 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
I’m so excited to bring you this live event. With a growing awareness of the environmental impacts that our choices have, I think it’s really important to have conversations that help spread the word.
I’ve been working in the quilting and textile industry for over 3 decades, and the sustainability industry for more than 10 years .
Do you want to know what sustainability can mean and how it is being addressed in the quilting and textile industry? Are you looking for options when you shop?
Sustainability is complicated and means many different things to different people. From organic or recycled fabric and threads, natural fibres and dyes and up-cycling there are a lot of choices.
Join me for an in-depth look at:
• The footprint of the cotton trail,
• Learn about the environmental impacts of the products we use,
• Let’s unpack the terms,
• Find out what our options are,
• Discuss the costs of being green, and
• Explore how you can do your part to help protect the planet, one stitch at a time.
You’ll also get a sneak peek of some of the projects I am working on and how I bring sustainability into my work.
