The making of cloth is one of humanity’s oldest endeavors. In this digital and electronic age, the members of the Seattle Weavers’ Guild are keepers of this antiquated technology. While some weavers use computers for design or computer controlled looms, the majority still use the tools that have been used for hundreds if not thousands of years.
The annual sale showcases one-of-a-kind hand-crafted items, including towels, rugs, blankets, tapestries, exquisite jewelry, accessories for pets, children’s items, handmade cards, household goods, hats, bags, wall art, jackets, scarves, wraps, sculptural basketry, liturgical weaving, handspun and/or hand-dyed yarns along with weaving and spinning tools. There will also be demonstrations of spinning, weaving and other fiber crafts during the sale.

This might be worth going to on Thursday night, if you’re free. St. Marks is just up the hill on 10th Ave E. Weavers tend to make pretty boxy stuff, but I think some of them are starting to step out and make peace with the idea of curves (no guarantees, of course).
