Pat, who is going on 107 years old, says she was surprised that her difficulty breathing was caused by a heart problem, not her lungs.
Keila McCracken says that clothing can tell people who we are, what we like, and even where we’re from. And she should know. She’s a sustainable fashion designer who studied in New York at the Fashion Institute of Technology. Keila runs Bare Cloth Studios, where she uses a pretty unique loom to weave her own fabrics. Her loom was built in the 1940s, so it’s considered a new model. Keila’s a Bemidji native who moved back to Northern Minnesota with one purpose: to start a fibershed. Don’t know what a fibershed is? Don’t worry! Keila explains in this interview with Area Voices producer Alauna Yust.
