Hosted by the Montrose Center for the Arts, the March Fiber Arts Exhibit encompasses all of the weaving arts including clothing, jewelry, accessories, home decor, basketry, inkle, rigid heddle, table, floor, tapestry… and more.
Many of the fiber artists exhibiting are members of the San Juan Weavers Guild, which was started in 1977 and has been involved in all things weaving from “sheep to shawl” for 44 consecutive years. Created for the exchange of ideas and knowledge of weaving and spinning in addition to community outreach, our interests range from raising sheep and alpacas, shearing and preparing the fleece, spinning the yarn, felting, knitting with handspun, and weaving with both handspun and commercial yarns.
The guild welcomes new members of all experience levels. Please check out our website: www.sanjuanweavers.org
