Sarah Beggs To All Instructors

In 2018 Sarah Beggs and Janet Lewis launched Fiber Works MPLS, a textile organization in Northeast Minneapolis with a focus on engaging our community in the arts of sewing and knitting handcraft.

Sarah Beggs is a skilled coordinator and creator. In her work with the neighborhood children over seven years at the Northeast Minneapolis Farmers Market, she organized a curriculum where each week the children explored the many aspects of agriculture through interactive projects and participatory events. Sarah believes that hands-on learning for young children is the best way to engage their minds and learn new skills. Running the Children’s Tent allowed for just this kind of exploration. The neighborhood kids gained insight and understanding of community and agriculture through these fun activities including finger knitting, spinning, and hand sewing.

A lifelong hand knitter, Sarah was VP and then Treasurer of the Minnesota Knitters Guild for three years. Her knitting skills developed by way of training under one of the most creative, innovative teachers in the Upper Midwest, Susan Sari (Sisu Designs) of Ely, MN. Currently, Sarah is working on The Master Hand Knitting Program through The Knitting Guild Association. Sarah holds a BA from Hampshire College in Amherst, MA, and is a co-owner of Roadrunner Records in south Minneapolis.
