Celebrating Textile Arts
Thanks to everyone who came out to the Folk Art Center during Fiber Weekend to celebrate textile arts. The fiber community is an amazing group of talented folks who love to make art and share what they love whether it be knitting, spinning, embroidery or mixed media fiber arts. The Guild is grateful to host such a wonderful group. We know that the visitors enjoyed the experience.
On Sunday Liz Spear curated another incredible Fashion Show of Wearable Art. The show featured the work of 38 Southern Highland Craft Guild members and five students from the Haywood Community College Professional Craft Department.
