Heartland Threads welcomes participation of fiber farmers, textile makers, clothing designers, artists, spinners, weavers, sewers, knitters, felters, crafters, dyers, tanners, mills, shops & events. We imagine a future where our clothing and textiles are both designed and made right here in the Heartland from locally grown fibers. Our 501(c)(3) non profit is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors with yearly membership fees and grants providing funds for our Mission, which is to stimulate a networking “fiberculture” of producers and users of local regenerative fibers & textiles, emphasizing the economic, environmental, and community benefits of these connections.
