DWG April 2018 Fiber Arts Fashion Show & Exhibit 

      On April 8 the Guild had a champagne reception and fashion show as part of its 2018 month-long exhibit and sale at the Chesterton Art Center.  A variety of beautiful and creative handwoven, spun, dyed, knit, crocheted and felted garments, bags, and items for the home were displayed at the Art Center throughout April, and many were modeled by Guild members and their daughters on April 8.  Some of the rugs and towels in the show were woven by the weavers at Sharing Meadows.  Almost all of the items in the exhibit/show were available for sale.

PresChall
This year's President's Challenge for the April Exhibit was to use metallic or shiny material in a project.
  Above are the
creative and attractive items made by members who responded to the Challenge: a shawl, scarf, skein of handspun yarn and two sculptural pieces.



Margaret

Margaret Jones was again our narrator for the Fashion Show.  She kept the flow of the Show moving smoothly with her commentary and door prize drawings. 

We had a very enthusiastic audience for the Fashion Show this year.  Below is a photo of a few of the people who came to enjoy it.  They are checking out the handwoven, knit and felted items we exhibited and enjoying refreshments before the Fashion Show started.
