FIBER ARTS PIECES BY LOCAL AND REGIONAL FIBER ARTISTS
With the recent resurgence in popularity of weaving on design and fashion blogs, the Seattle Weavers’ Guild Annual Sale offers an opportunity for the greater Seattle community to experience over 3,500 original textiles and purchase unique handwoven items from local weavers, some of whom have practiced the timeless art of weaving for more than 30 years.
While some weavers use computers for design or computer controlled looms, the majority still work by hand and use the same types of wooden looms and spinning wheels that have been around for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. The sale will showcase one-of-a-kind handcrafted items, including towels, rugs, blankets, tapestries, exquisite jewelry, accessories for pets, children’s items, handmade cards, household goods, hats, bags, wall art, jackets, scarves, wraps, sculptural baskets, liturgical weaving, handspun and/or hand-dyed yarns along with weaving and spinning tools.
We invite you to join us at our Annual Sale to see the work of our hands and hearts as we follow the thread of this ancient craft. There will also be demonstrations of spinning, weaving and other fiber crafts during the sale.
