PA Fibershed Supply Chain Meeting
March 8 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 amFree
Join All Together Now PA’s Clothing& Textile Coalition for our first Pennsylvania Fibershed Supply Chain Meeting on Wednesday, March 8th from 10-11:30am EST where we are excited to bring together every aspect of Pennsylvania’s clothing and textile supply chain in one Zoom room!
Through our work we have found that designers rarely, if ever, are given the opportunity to connect with the farmers who produce their fibers; recyclers may never get to meet the designers or manufacturers whose clothes or textiles they’re up-cycling; patternmakers may not ever have the chance to collaborate with spinners and weavers; knitters could go their whole career without ever speaking with the farmer whose fiber they touch everyday….
That’s why we are inviting all fiber farmers, processors, spinners, weavers, knitters, manufactures, pattern makers, designers, cut and sewers, up-cyclers, and anyone else who holds a key role along the supply chain to join our meeting; a place where vital stakeholders can come together to forge connections with others in the industry who they may otherwise never cross paths with.
During this meeting we will review ATN-PA/PA Fibershed’s current projects, discuss our new membership program and hold breakout sessions were attendees can begin to cultivate relationships with other members along the supply chain. Join us as we problem solve and work towards a local and sustainable fashion economy.
