Pacific Textile Arts is an all volunteer educational nonprofit existing to support, share, and celebrate the fiber arts.
Our campus includes a gallery in our historic Victorian house, where exhibits are new each month; an extensive catalogued textile library; a tapestry weaving studio; and a large classroom for meetings, events, and workshops, stocked with weaving looms and equipment. A covered patio provides an area for social events and dye workshops.
Pacific Textile Arts wishes to convey its gratitude to the Community Foundation of Mendocino County for awarding us generous grants to build our arbor over the patio, to mitigate the effects of the Covid 19 pandemic, to upgrade our technology to better manage our Library and Textile Collections, and most recently, to build reference and materials cabinets for our weaving classroom.
Thank you for your support and partnership over the years!.
