Textillery yarns to benefit disability charity

Bloomington, In. – At the High Point International Home Furnishings Market, Mar. 26 - Apr. 1, Textillery Weavers will showcase Stone Belt Mixed Media Mosaics, which incorporate recycled Textillery yarns.

The framed mosaics use a range of materials selected, designed and produced by disabled artists and other disabled persons who work in the Art & Craft division of Stone Belt Arc, an Indiana-based non-profit organization. They will be featured in the Textillery showroom, IHFC-D408.

Judith Rose, head designer, Textillery Weavers, noted, “In addition to using recycled materials, the project utilizes the abilities of disabled persons in a workshop setting to create satisfying job opportunities and a new income stream for the agency. What’s more, the artwork corresponds directly to the trends Textillery creates and follows as it is influenced by our color choices and direction.”
