Bed-ucation Open House

October 15, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us for an evening of fiber knowledge with the French Quarter Fibrarians.

We invite you to be our guest and explore our vast collection of fibers from around the world, focusing on the production processes of our favorite purveyors. Oh, and of course enjoy some bubbles and delectable accoutrements in the process.

Activities include:

Bed Making 101:
Curious how to masterfully make your bed? We can show you! Our Bed Making 101 will teach you the tricks of the trade on how to create the PERFECT bed.

Linen Care 101:
Ever wonder how to keep your sheets in tiptop shape? We’re here to help. Learn how to extend the life of your sheets, and even keep them from getting too wrinkled after washing!

Fiber topics for the evening include:

Legna: A Love Story About Wood Fiber
In Egyptian bedding, wood logs served as the pillow of choice. Today, wood is the pillowcase of choice! Learn about the luxury that is Legna: Italian wood fiber that is changing the way we think about sheets. A mellifluous hand that mimics silk with the breathability of percale, Legna stands to challenge even our most tried and true loves that are cotton and linen.

Abyss Habidecor
60 hard-to-resist colors and a multitude of brilliant bath linen options, Abyss Habidecor takes centerstage as our purveyor for towels and bath mats. How do we know their quality is superb? We’ve seen the production! During this discussion, we will show you a behind-the-scenes look at the production of the towels that will NEVER unravel. Curious how that’s possible? We’ve got the inside scoop—join us!

Co.Bi. Cashmere
Weaving hand-dyed yarn on looms waxed with potato starch (just like the good old days), Co.Bi. Cashmere embodies everything we love about traditional blanket production. In this discussion, we will walk through the step-by-step process of how our favorite blankets are produced. From the dyeing processes to being brushed with thistle, no steps are overlooked in creating the coziest of cashmere.
