FiberArts In the Library Exhibition!

FiberArts In the Library Exhibition!

Saturday
February 20, 2010
9:00 am ~ 3:30 pm

  Behind every good fiber artist is a book! Well, okay, many books. This is the premise underlying our 3rd Fiber Arts in the Library Exhibition, back by popular demand on Saturday, Feb. 20, 2010 from 9 AM- 3:30 PM.  Whether you are looking for a new hobby, wanting to know the books the experts use, or just like gawking as artists demonstrate their craft, come visit the Library for this special event.

     From the Lecture Hall to the Children's Room, scattered throughout the Library, 30+ area artists and artisans will be demonstrating everything from Japanese embroidery to rag rugs.  Come talk to the folks about how they got started and their special techniques.  Bring the children to felt a ball, try their hand at knitting or just for a "big dose" of inspiration.  There will be plenty of new artists as well as your favorites.
