A Summary of American Craft Week in Wilmington NC

It's been TEN glorious days of celebration - around the country and around Wilmington NC.  American Craft Week included celebrations of all sorts of art and artisan craft.  I was thrilled to be a part of this celebration here in Wilmington, and actually one of my venues will continue to hang the show "High Fiber Content!" through October 16.

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.
