Our Fiber Guild Annual Show and Sale - Fiber Fantasy

This year our Fiber Guild of the Savannahs held our annual show and sale at the Savannah JEA (Jewish Educational Alliance) for the entire month of December.
I was able to display my Coton Jaune blanket that I woven Saori way on a warp of a variety of white and off white cottons incorporating my own handspun cottons, some dyed with indigo and some natural brown cotton from Louisiana.  I wore my Saori way skirt with matching scarf.
I was very impressed by a couple of unique fiber art pieces.  One in particular by Urban Jupena of silicone over a grid of yarns.  Urban created it using the tubes of silicone usually used to caulk windows.  Very clever and it threw lovely lacey shadows on the wall.

Another interesting piece was by Carey Chapman of the Life of a Cicada incorporating the shells from cicadas she found at nearby Tybee Island.

It was fun to see how my former Taste of Freestyle Weaving student Treesa Germany has soared in her weaving the Saori way.
Here are more displays showing some of my work:

And it was great to be able to display some of the Goddesses our members created in memory of Mary Kelly, who explore the goddess figure in embroideries and fiber work throughout the world. Guild member Deborah Brooks' goddess was particularly entrancing!  Thanks to Mary Mistak who made the tree of life to display them.

I'm proud to be part of such a talented group of fiber artists!
