Seattle Weavers’ Guild show-sale turns 25

Tens of thousands of years ago, some smartypants invented string. Humans were then off to the races, sartorially and decoratively speaking, because thread was next, then weaving and spinning. Most of us use and wear machine-woven cloth these days, but there is nothing like a handwoven piece for color, texture and beauty. The 25th annual Seattle Weavers’ Guild Show and Sale is Oct. 25-27, and a good place to literally get a handle on handmade works. Fiber artists will bring towels, rugs, blankets, tapestries, pet accessories, hats, scarves, wall art — anything that can be woven and enjoyed. The show/sale is 5-8 p.m. Oct. 25, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Oct. 26 and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Oct. 27 at St. Mark’s Cathedral in Seattle.

Proceeds benefit the guild’s web of outreach activities — weaving programs at Seattle Children’s, school demonstrations, classes at Southeast Seattle Senior Center and numerous workshops and lessons.
