14 : Community Organizations Part 1 : Hudson Valley Textile Project with Gail Parrinello
This week we are talking with Gail Parrinello owner of the Cornwall Yarn Shop in Cornwall, NY and President of the board for the Hudson Valley Textile Project.
Gail started her yarn shop in 2004 with the intention of offering locally produced yarn, but at the time she was disappointed in the offerings that were available. That fueled her passion to create connections in our local supply chain that eventually developed into the Hudson Valley Textile Project. Now her store and many other places proudly carry Hudson Valley yarns on their shelves. Bringing our supply chain closer together and sharing their stories
The Hudson Valley Textile Project recognizes, celebrates and supports a sustainable model of regionally sourced, processed, and manufactured fiber products. While members may work independently, their communal action is in support of a farm to fashion fiber chain that supports local growers, processors, artisans, manufacturers, and consumers.
