Prairie Fiber Arts Center Team

Catherine R. Lundberg


I am a passionate believer in the role fiber arts play in our emotional and mental health. The joy of the colors and textures, planning a project, learning new skills, connecting with other fiber artists can be important tools in mediating the effects of isolation, depression and anxiety. Like many fiber arts enthusiasts, I learned the basics of crochet from my grandmother when I was very young. I continue to explore the art of crochet and have dabbled in tapestry, Tunisian and many other forms. I learned to knit a few years ago, but crochet will always be my favorite craft.

Liz Fevig Hager

Store Manager/Instructor

Liz has been knitting for 35 years and is thrilled to be part of the team at PFAC. To be surrounded by yarn “at work” is a dream job for her. She enjoys meeting new people, exploring new yarns and learning more about the wide world of fiber. Liz is also a massage therapist. She and her husband have two grown kids, a goldendoodle and enjoy spending time at the lake.  

Kelly Laux

Assistant Store Manager/Instructor

A self-taught crocheter of 20+ years, Kelly taught herself to knit in 2010 after joining a group of fiber crafters doing a knit-a-long. She thrives on learning new knitting and crocheting skills by testing patterns and creating samples for both designers and yarn companies. She also dabbles in spinning and dyeing yarn. You will likely find her at home with her husband and three children and a fiber project in hand. 

Halah Fritz

Sales Associate/Instructor

Halah lives in Moorhead with her two cats, husband, and yarn stash.  She is an avid knitter and beginner crocheter.  Halah's favorite things to knit are socks and sweaters.  She looks forward to teaching class at PFAC, working at the store, and meeting more crafters to talk all things fiber arts with.  Halah finished her MA in Communications and credits knitting with getting her through all of her Zoom classes.

Cari Jehlik

Sales Associate/Instructor

Cari Jehlik cannot follow a pattern to save her life--constantly tinkering and outright changing major elements every time. Combining this tendency with her propensity toward math, spreadsheets and general nerdiness, making her own designs and patterns was the only rational outcome. Fitting it around her busy life with 4 kids and 2 dogs is proving to be a challenge, but one she is always up for. When she's not up to her eyeballs in the aforementioned, she likes to read, write stories, and run ridiculous distances.
