DWG 2013 Style Show and Exhibit Photo Gallery

      On April 7 the Guild had a champagne reception and style show as part of its 2013 month-long exhibit and sale at the Chesterton Art Center.  A variety of beautiful and creative handwoven, spun, knit, crocheted and felted garments, bags, yarns and items for the home were displayed at the Art Center throughout April, and many were modeled by Guild members and friends on April 7.  Items woven by the weavers at Sharing Meadows were also included in the show.   Almost all of the items in the exhibit/show were available for sale.

Here is a view of some of the crowd who came to view the Style Show.  That's Margaret the MC holding the microphone and Joyce in the doorway.

Jeane, our President, challenged us to make works for the Show that used plant fiber or natural plant dyes or that were inspired by plants.  Above is a sample of the work that members produced following the guidelines.  (There were several more President's Challenge items that weren't photographed.) Gallery visitors were encouraged to vote for their favorites, and prizes will be awarded at the Guild May lunch.

Samples of other work that was displayed but wasn't modeled:
