The Second Biennial Fibre Content Exhibition

By all opinions the show was a fabulous success! As we hoped, the power and the magic of fibre art shone for all who attended. We want to express a very personal thank you to the artists who shared their wonderful creations and all the volunteers who helped with show organization, set-up, take down and docent duties and, most of all, to all of you who came out to see this awesome exhibition!
