The Mentor Group

The Mentor Group was initially developed in 2016 to pair new fiber people with experienced and knowledgeable fiber folks, all members of our Skagit Guild. Since that time it has expanded to provide field trips and fun events to expose all members to the resources in and around our area. We happen to sit in a pocket of talented weavers/spinners/fiber artists who have been leaders in the field for their entire careers. These artists will make up our field of excursions for the 2019-2020 season. All members are invited to participate but we need to coordinate car pools, so you must let me know if you plan to attend.
