A Trunk Show is a special event that allows people to come see items that are not normally in circulation or on display. Think of the days when merchants carried all their goods in a suitcase or trunk to showcase their wares, and then mix that with today’s age of technology where much of what we aim to create is viewed on a flat screen, and you can begin to imagine the appeal of touching and feeling the garments and accessories that artists such as pattern designers and yarn dyers create.
Their FOCUS ON LOCAL Trunk Shows will be bringing fibre artists from the Pacific Northwest (and some from as local as from our own backyard) to present their designs for one night only, once a month for the rest of 2017. Each month will focus on a new artist(s) and they may also make a special presentation such a lecture or class over the weekend.
On August 13th, we bring together:
- Caitlin ffrench, from We Will Tell You All Of Our Secrets
- Heidi Braacx, from Vegan Yarns
- Kirstan MacIntyre, from Knitter’s Jewelry
From 6:00-8:00pm with FREE Admission
