Annual Open House
The weekend began as a cool football Saturday with Iowa winning over ISU. And then the piece de resistance...The Craft Guild's Open House. Each September we open the Guild House to the community as an opportunity to learn what we have to offer. More than 100 people toured the house, viewed it's exhibits and watched individuals demonstrating their art/craft, or simply had a cookie. It's always a fun afternoon, we members get together to renew our memberships and to see what the others have been doing all year-an exchange of passions and artistic expression.
Members demonstrated spinning yarn with wheel or spindle, knitting a blanket or sweater.
One potter demonstrated "throwing" while the others showed their work
Quilters, weavers, beaders, ply-braiders had items in the exhibit.
It was a great day.
