The dream of a family touched by autism. "Weaving A purpose"
As the parents of a young woman with autism, Eric and Beryl Bartkus knew there was something missing for individuals and families affected by autism and developmental disabilities. The big question is always, "What will my child do when he/she ages out of school?" For those with special needs in Michigan this happens when they reach the age of 26. Eric and Beryl believe that one answer to that question is the opportunity to enjoy meaningful work in the "real world".
Ability Weavers has established its weaving studio in the small town of Lowell Michigan. It is here that we believe our employees will develop a sense of purpose

This newly restored and handicap accessible historic building, built in 1907 as part of Baker Furniture Factories features the 2000 sq. ft. Fiber Arts studio of Debbie Leverence and the 1000 sq. ft. Gallery of finished goods and OLD Mill Yarn retail display. The 3000 sq. ft. lower level houses the Old Mill Yarn winding operation
with 34 commercial winding heads that can produce 4", 5" and 6" tubes and 7" cones. We also have a commercial Skein winder for converting cone yarn into 2 yard skeins for custom dying.
Located at the south end of Water Street in the Historic Mill District of Downtown Allegan, Baker Allegan Studios is the first step in the revitalization of this Historic District.
Most notably, the Mill District was the Original home of Baker Furniture. Founded here in Allegan in 1893 by Seib Baker, Baker Furniture was taken to its world renowned status by his son Hollis Baker in 1925. Baker operated in Allegan before moving to Holland Mi. in 1933
