In 1974, a group of Northland folks interested in weaving, knitting, spinning, wool dyeing and the like formed the Duluth Fiber Handcrafters Guild.

Perhaps it was just an offshoot of the back-to-the-land movement of the '70s, but over 40 years later, they're still going strong.

Katie Chmielewski is one of the folks who will be demonstrating some of the crafts and skills of the Guild at the 22nd Annual Lake Superior Harvest Festival September 12, and she joined us this morning to talk about some lost arts that aren't, perhaps, so lost after all.
