Seattle Weavers Guild Sale



October 22-24 is the annual Seattle Weavers Guild sale. If you are in the Seattle area, this is a fantastic opportunity to see some amazing textiles.

The Seattle guild has over 300 members from the area. Talent and inspiration abounds. Not to mention great buys.

The hall is set up like a huge department store - but this department store is all hand made textiles. There are incredible baskets (Marilyn Moore), rugs of all sizes and descriptions, tapestries, household textiles (Robyn Spady, Jan Paul), bobbin lace (Lois Gaylord), fashions - accessories and clothing, and even a department for yarns - hand spun and/or hand dyed.

Truly a feast for the eyes - and hands.

Hi Barbara,

You can get a taste by watching the slide show. Click on the picture and wait a bit for the slides to load.

There are some fantastic pieces just in the slide show.

If I remember, I'll take photos with my Blackberry. :)

Cheers,
Laura

Thanks Laura for steering me in the right direction to see some of the slides - you are right, fantastic pieces. Perhaps some day, we will get our act together and put on a sale at our Weaving Studio in the convent. It would be a great location - if only we had a bigger population. Weaverly yours ... Barbara

Hi Laura, am on vacation in Paris and haven't seen any scarves here that are as lovely as the ones at the SWG sale!

Look forward to seeing you in Oct.
