Join us to wrap up the month of May by learning how to sew on the handmade patches we’ve made inspired by local artist Ali O’Neal. Join us for Art Studio Live at 2:30 p.m. (MT), so you can learn how to revive and upcycle garments in need of a little TLC.


Broadcast live every Wednesday at 2:30 p.m. (MT) on Instagram, Art Studio Live! features art-making activities with easy-to-follow, step-by-step methods to expand learning and create with materials found at home.

Ali O’Neal grew up in Stevens Point, Wisconsin, spending her days meandering through the Christmas tree forests and catching bluegill in the pond. She attended Gustavus Adolphus College in Saint Peter, Minnesota, where she graduated with a degree in Environmental Studies and Spanish. After nearly a decade working as an Environmental Educator, she transitioned into creating full-time.

While in the Peace Corps in Ecuador, she melded her affinity for creativity and the environment and painted a series of environmentally-themed community murals. Ali is a screen printer, designer, and seamstress, and is currently pursuing creative endeavors through her brand, Thimble Fox. She uses her work in serigraphy and textiles as a platform for social and political commentary, and to educate about the inequities of the textile fast fashion industry.
