Fiber Arts Group Makes Donation

Fiber Arts Group Makes Donation

The Pride Center is tremendously proud of the members of our LGBTQ Fiber Arts Group, who generously donated a parcel of their creations to several agencies providing services to Vermont’s vulnerable populations this past weekend. The group provided hats, scarves, and mittens to the VT Refugee Resettlement Project, Spectrum, and COTS.

Coordinator Megan Moerdyk said, regarding the F.A.G, “I was looking to connect with other LGBT people in a social context. I have always been creative and had done embroidery in the past so I decided to resurrect this craft and try the group [...] I loved giving out our group's amazing donations - we have very talented, generous members!” Group members have been tirelessly knitting and crocheting these items so they would be available to community members by winter.

Join this group of merry fiber artists! The Fiber Arts Group meets on second and fourth Sundays of each month at the Pride Center from 12-2 PM. Interested parties may email megan@pridecentervt for more information regarding the fun, irreverently funny, creative group.
