The Weavers’ Guild of Boston, the country’s oldest weavers’ guild at 95 years young, will hold its Annual Sale and Exhibit at the Wellesley Village Church (i.e., Wellesley Congregational Church), 2 Central Street, on October 25 – 27.
This juried sale offers shoppers over 2,000 individually crafted items, including scarves and shawls for all seasons and occasions. The sale also includes colorful blankets, placemats and other household items, as well as other unique gifts such as woven glass. Most items are handwoven, though knitted, felted and/or sewn pieces are also available.
The 2018 Guild Challenge and Exhibit is a “Profile Draft”. A profile draft is a weaving design made up of blocks and creates a silhouette of the pattern. The weaver, within the specific given profile draft, is able to use any structure to create a household item. Exhibit pieces showcase the talents of the weaver’s craft.
This year’s event will be held:
Thursday, Oct. 25 10:00am – 7:00pm
Friday, Oct. 26 10:00am – 7:00pm
Saturday, Oct. 27 10:00am – 6:00pm
