It will be the first fiber arts trail of its kind in the state and the Upper Midwest.

The 14 members of the Cedarburg Spur Fiber Arts Trail will host their Grand Opening weekend event themed ‘Postcards from the Trail’ on March 21 – 22, 2015. Hours are Saturday, 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. and Sunday, Noon – 4:00

“The textile artists and businesses featured on this unique art trail are a part of the new tradition of makers that is fueling the resurgence of textile arts,” said Jennifer Wilder, founder and owner of Midwest Fiber Arts Trails, who developed the fiber arts trail concept in the Midwest.

“Joining together, the trail members have formed a vibrant and diverse gathering place that fosters creativity and innovation.”

Along the 15-stop, self-guided tour, the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts & Fiber Art in Cedarburg welcomes visitors into their Barn Gallery to view the current exhibit, *“Color in Motion: 30 Quilts for 30 Years.”*  Artists will welcome visitors into their studios at the Grafton Arts Mill and Cedarburg Woolen Mill and Shops.
