Expanded space, expanded possibilities

A special note of thanks following Give to the Max Day:

Thanks to the generosity of 147 donors, we exceeded the $15,000 match created by our Textile Center Board of Directors and members of our Board committees for Give to the Max Day — raising a total of $30,807. We’re planning a special Textile Center open house to take place later in February, so you can see your contributions at work in our expanded program spaces. Thank you!


For years Textile Center has needed more space to meet programmatic growth. Starting January 1, we will have an additional 2,300 square feet of space to serve you within our art center we've called home since 2001.

This year we are dedicating our Give to the Max Day (GTMD) campaign to raise funds to reimagine and outfit the spaces being vacated by our long-time tenant, the Weavers Guild of Minnesota (WGM). Both of our organizations have grown substantially during the past 21 years, and we wish the guild well on its upcoming move and appreciate WGM’s support as an affiliated guild of Textile Center.

We need your support during this major change occurring in our facility.

This expansion includes two well-lit classrooms, as well as space in the front corner of our building to expand our retail shop. Your investment will go toward reimagining and refreshing the space, acquiring fixtures, and creating features essential to an inviting, comfortable, and inspiring environment for conversation, classes, lectures, guild gatherings, and more.

Textile Center’s Board of Directors and members of our board committees have created a $15,000 match for this campaign. Your GMTD gift will have double the impact!

We will celebrate our new spaces during our Fiber Art for All week the last week of February. We are planning a series of events starting Tuesday, February 21, and the week will culminate with a community open house on Saturday, February 25, 2023. Please mark your calendars and join us to celebrate your investment.

Our GTMD campaign also sets the stage for an exciting second phase of architectural planning that will take place in the year ahead with our architect David Salmela.

We look forward to launching a capital campaign that will help us reimagine our Textile Center, invest in much needed capital improvements, and to carry forward Textile Center’s legacy of “honoring textile traditions, promoting excellence and innovation, nurturing appreciation, and inspiring widespread participation in fiber art.”
