In September 2018, we hosted our first textile summit to explore questions, approaches, and responses to the concept of Mindful Materials. We invited artists, designers, educators, and thinkers to talk about how textile manufacturing can take a new course toward a sustainable future. The summit was one weekend long, split between a listening Saturday and a hands-on Sunday. The Summit featured a keynote speaker, panelists, a pecha kucha, and a late afternoon trunk show with cocktail hour / networking opportunity. On Sunday we returned for two opportunities to practice a mindful approach to material and process through workshops.
