Our  local guild’s Holiday Exhibition and Sale has come and gone. What an inspiring weekend! I am always awed by the variety and quality of artwork that all the members share.

We had a lot more wall art this year, felted pieces as well as hand-made paper. One of our members needle-felted playsets for small hands — adorable landscapes for ducks, hedgehogs, and turtles. Another member repurposed linen clothing into scarves dyed with rust (yes!) and embellished with stitching; so creative!

And of course, we had a colorful collections of towels that seemed to fly out the door. I selected an exquisite Scandinavian-style linen towel to come home with me. Yes, we some of our own best customers!

I am also humbled, knowing that a guild like this is something to be treasured. Not everyone has this kind of support and inspiration, not to be taken for granted. I wish all weavers were surrounded by an inspiring, encouraging fiber family, if not locally, than at least over the net.

May your fiber connections bring you inspiration as the fall quiets into winter. Stay warm!
