Prairie Fiber Arts Center Team

Catherine R. Lundberg

Owner

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

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

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. 

Monica Schroeder 

Sales Associate/Instructor

Monica lives in downtown Fargo with her cat, Winston, where they enjoy snuggling on the couch with a blanket, a craft, and a documentary.  Crochet and cross stitch are their favorites but sometimes they dabble in knitting and embroidery.  She can't wait to meet others who share a passion for fiber arts and learning new things through working at the store and teaching classes.  Monica is also the owner of a local children's salon and can't wait to expand the opportunities for children in our community to gain dexterity, confidence, and positive mental health practices through fiber arts!

Halah Jost-Mahunik

Sales Associate/Instructor

Halah lives in Moorhead with her two cats, fiancé, 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 is finishing her MA in Communications this semester and credits knitting with getting her through all of her Zoom classes.
