My involvement included "High Fiber Content," a collection of fiber art produced by the local Fiber Arts Collective. Ten members displayed their wearable and functional fiber art in the inimitable new home of aMuse Artisanal Finery. Owner / milliner, Jan Wutkowski, rearranged her whole shop and opened her doors to us. I, along with Jan and Barbara Snyder and friends, helped hang the show, thoroughly enjoying the process. Lots of photos here. And here are some of my own.

Funning at aMuse!
The show can be seen at aMuse right now through Saturday. While there, take a look at all the fabulous millinery designs from Jan - hats and headpieces - as well as her felted items and a whole collection of vintage clothing and jewelry.
