April 17 | PDX Design Week | Connecting Threads: Rebuilding our Domestic Apparel System
“Join us for a panel discussion around those who are striving to build local production, from farm to fiber. By strengthening the connections between the passionate, hardworking people that power our local fiber economy, we hope to position the Pacific Northwest to meet the demand for domestic, thoughtfully produced and environmentally responsible fiber, textiles, and apparel. Panelists will share their experience, current projects, and what’s being done to foster growth within their industry. Apparel professionals, land stakeholders, manufacturing specialists, and anyone interested in the farm-to-fiber movement, you’re invited.”
