One day only: Longbranch Clubhouse, Sat Oct. 6th 10am – 4pm in conjunction with the Key Peninsula Farm Tour
What is Fiber Arts – Threads Through Time?
Over two dozen local artists come together to exhibit and sell quality artistic pieces created from various fibers:
- quilts, wall hangings, rugs
- wearable art: hats, clothing, silks
- bags & handwoven baskets
- table decorations
- hand tooled leather craft
- embroidery (Hardanger or Whitework)
- Alpaca fur and wood
See demonstrations of how pieces are created and the skill that goes into both the traditional techniques and modern adaptations. Meet the artists that made each unique piece.
Of special interest on the grounds, outside you will find yard art, furniture and wood sculptures that are available for purchase.
The featured artist this year is Carolyn Wiley who has lived in the Key Peninsula 20 years and has been sewing all her life. From her background as an artist she focuses on artistic design in quilts and crocheted jewelry. For this year’s show, Carolyn has designed a special quilt called “Dream Farm”. Come see this masterpiece that you could win with a $5 raffle ticket with all proceeds benefiting the LIC Foundation…. and you do not need to be present to win (drawing will be on Oct. 10th).
Be sure to check out the The Longbranch Clubhouse as a venue you can privately rent. With polished woods throughout the natural beamed A-frame, this venue is a historic art piece in itself! See all the rental details at this link.
As you head out to Longbranch along the Key Peninsula, stop at some of the local farms on the Farm Tour. The Fiber Arts Fair is sure to have that unique artistic holiday gift or that special piece you’ve been looking for. Admission to the event is free. Lunch is available for purchase.
