“As the holidays approach, be sure to put the Fiber Fair on your to-do list. The event, first held in 1956, showcases the craftsmanship of Weavers Guild members, most of whom are from Minnesota. Scarves, shawls, purses, rugs, placemats, and wall hangings are among the unique gifts you can choose from, with 74 percent of each sale going to the artist and the rest benefiting the nonprofit’s educational programming. From traditional craftsmanship to innovative contemporary designs, the items at this fair showcase a range of talent from the guild’s 560 members. New this year is a sustainable wares section, which focuses on green and eco-friendly goods, fibers, and materials. In addition to the sale, the fair also includes maker talks where shoppers can meet the artists and learn about their techniques.” by Sheila Regan, City Pages 2017
