Enhancing our expanded spaces to better serve our community of artists and makers
Textile Center is bustling these days. Our programming is returning to pre-pandemic levels, and lots of activity is filling the additional rooms we acquired when our long-time tenant, the Weavers Guild of Minnesota, relocated to its new home.
This year we doubled the footprint of our retail shop, and have an additional two classrooms to serve even more artists and makers. We established a new community lounge for our patrons – a spot to hang out and create, read, and connect with others.
Last year our Give to the Max Day (GTMD) donors helped cover our costs to put a fresh coat of paint in our new spaces, take down a wall to expand our retail shop, and invest in new furniture for the lounge.
This year we want to build on the progress from last year’s GTMD giving. This year we have set a goal to raise $18,000 to support two improvements for our facility:
As of 1:45 pm today, Thursday, November 16, we met our $11,000 match assembled by our Board of Directors. We're nearing our $18,000 GTMD goal.
You help Textile Center thrive, and we are grateful for your generosity. Your support will help us make some needed changes that will improve visitors’ experiences and keep the environment top of mind.
