West Town Education for Textiles featured on WTTW’s Chicago Tonight

West Town Education for Textiles on WTTW

West Town Education for Textiles (WEFT), a partnership between Envision Unlimited and The Weaving Mill, was recently featured on an episode of WTTW’s Chicago Tonight!

In the segment, Envision Unlimited CEO Mark McHugh shares that “We’ve been partnering with [The Weaving Mill] for about two years. It is all about helping individuals with intellectually and developmental disabilities have more choice in their lives, be as independent as possible and to be part of a larger community.”

Kristen Noonen, director of Envision’s Westtown Community Hub, tells Chicago Tonight: “The Weaving Mill is empowering participants to be more creative, to find independence in the skills they’re using by designing their fabric or bags or learning how to sew because they want to, not necessarily because they’re going to be paid a rate.”

Thank you to textile artists Matti Sloman and Emily Winter of The Weaving Mill for helping to build this program in a way that’s so meaningful for program participants and the community.
