For the 17th year, the annual Fiber Wearable Fashion Show heads down the runway at the Folk Art Center. The event, which showcases apparel and fiber art techniques, is produced by Liz Spear and will be stages twice (at 1 and 3 p.m.) on Sunday, May 15.
The fashion shows are part of the offerings of The Art of Embellishment: Fiber Weekend at the Folk Art Center. Starting Saturday, May 14, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the weekend includes demonstrations, a variety of fiber artists working in many styles, and an emphasis on embroidery.
“As the craft of fiber originated out of a time of necessity, today its function has extended beyond the traditional uses to elaborate embellishments that often require mastering a new set of skills,” says a press release. “Other participants in attendance will be the well-known quilter Georgia Bonesteel, alongside Sheila Rauen working on blocks and patterns. Lin Oglesby and Rita de Maintenon will have their knitting needles ready, and Mary Nichols will be at her spinning wheel with the Blue Ridge Spinners.”
