All Together Now PA – Judy Wicks & Rachel Mednick-Higgins

June 11 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

This month local legend Judy Wicks visits the Guild! In person! Along with coalition leader Rachel Higgins, this dynamic duo will fill us in on their latest efforts to support a vibrant PA-based FIBERSHED under the banner of ALL TOGETHER NOWPA. Learn all about how building LOCAL supply chains can support a more sustainable future for our regional fashion & textile economy!  Get inspired to connect the work you do as an artist or artisan to the local fibershed community.

After championing the farm to table movement through her restaurant the White Dog Cafe, Judy Wicks turned her attention to connecting rural and urban communities to build local supply chains providing self-reliance in basic needs, and founded the non-profit All Together Now PA in 2019.  Judy is an activist, entrepreneur, author, and speaker working to build a more compassionate, just, regenerative and locally-based economy.
