Tour of Swans Island Company
December 1, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm$35 – $45
Since 1992, Swans Island Company has been producing naturally handdyed, handwoven blankets on the coast of Maine. Now located in a 1790’s farmhouse in Northport, Swans Island has grown to produce full lines of handcrafted yarns, handloomed blankets and throws, knit and woven accessories, and washable organic blankets. We are committed to producing textiles the way they should be made: with sustainably sourced fibers and timeless design, inspired by generations of craft traditions. Swans Island Company President Bill Laurita will lead a tour of the weaving studio, dyehouse and finishing room, discussing both the company’s history and its expansion from a blanket company on a small Maine island to an internationally recognized producer of fine American textiles.
Host: Bill Laurita, President & CEO
