The Textile Center is a hub for all things fiber, located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. While it is an all-around strong fiber arts resource, providing advocacy for fiber arts, a gallery space, an amazing resource library, and classes for both adults and youth, it is their comprehensive garage sale tradition that landed them on this list of sustainability favorites.
It is troubling that when we aim for change, we sometimes falter because the change seems to lack sufficient magnitude to justify the effort. For example, it is startling to hear people say that alternative energy is a pointless pursuit because it only supplies a minuscule amount of that which is necessary to meet our needs. This line of thinking leaves me cold because everything starts small.
