Welcome to our Fiber Arts Blog!

Welcome to the new blog for the Potomac Fiber Arts Gallery! We are looking forward to sharing our love of fiber art with you.

We are a co-operative gallery whose members all create fiber art. Every major technique is represented (weaving, knitting, quilting, silk painting, felting,...) and many others you may never have heard of (kumihimo knotting, laminated felting, shibori, thread painting, metal fiber knitting,...). Our work includes wearable art, wall hangings and framed art, jewelry, table linens, book arts and cards, decorative items, and more. We will be highlighting these techniques and our artists on blog posts to come.

Each year we have 11 themed shows. Every single item is juried in at the beginning of the show, and all unsold items removed at the end. In addition to ensuring the high quality of our displayed work, this keeps a fresh look in our space, and encourages repeat visits.

Here are a few snapshots of the current show, "The Child Within." It is a fitting theme for this first blog post, as we love to play with our fiber media, but playing is our business – as any child can tell you, playing is also hard work!
