From the Midwest Fiber Arts Trails website:
The name Threaded Streams Fiber Arts Trail is an artful reference to the geological formation that makes up this part of Sauk County, Wisconsin. The beautiful Baraboo Hills that hug the city of Baraboo are the terminal moraine of the most recent advance of glaciers in the area. Melt water from under the ice sheet formed rivers that cut valleys as rocks and sediment was deposited along their routes. As the water flow subsided, crisscrossing channels formed in the river beds. Weaving across sandbars and sediment; these small channels are called braided streams. They are like shimmering ribbons, rippling along the surface of the land.
The Baraboo-Lodi-Portage area is located approximately 45 miles northwest of Madison. The trail encompasses an area from Baraboo south to Sauk City and Prairie du Sac east to Lodi on the southern boundary, up to Portage along the Wisconsin River and back to Baraboo. Trail members include studio artists & artisans, shops, teachers and farms, dyers, spinners, felt makers, baskets weavers, quilt makers, needle arts, sewing, weavers and more. Trail members exhibit their work, participate in regional art fairs, teach workshops and classes, hold memberships in local and state-wide arts organizations and are very active in their communities. They are professional makers.
