Fiber Philadelphia

The most amazing thing happens in Philadelphia, PA every other year.  The "City of Brotherly Love" is host to everything and all things fiber art. It is a city wide event with forums and symposiums along with guest artist workshops and lectures.  The whole month of March is dedicated to this event.  All the galleries focus on fiber art exhibits with artists who enter the shows from all over the world.  It is an event that started about 10 years ago and has continued to grow since then. 

The Philadelphia Guild of Handweavers will have their own annual fiber art exhibit called "Celebration of Fibers". It opens March 23 and will be held at the Philadelphia Guild House in Manayunk. It is included in this great whirlwind of gallery hopping that occurs around the city.  I will be exhibiting 3 pieces in this show all of which are very different.  If you live in Philadelphia or have a chance to get to Philadelphia, I would encourage you to visit as many galleries as possible.  I know you will have a great time seeing all the wonderful creative work that the city is honoring. I don't know of any other city that does as great of job of focusing on Fiber Art as Philadelphia does.
