2021 HGB Show & Sale Juried Showcase Exhibit Theme – Colorful Colorado

Call For Entries

O beautiful for spacious skies
For amber waves of grain
For purple mountains majesties
Above the fruited plain!

The rich colorful Colorado view from Pike’s Peak was Katharine Lee Bates inspiration for those words.

Applicants to the 2021 HGB Show & Sale Juried Showcase are asked: How does the richly hued beauty of Colorado inspire your fiber art?

HGB Fiber Art Show & Sale Juried Showcase

Each year, during the five day Fiber Art Show & Sale at the Boulder County Fairgrounds, Handweavers Guild of Boulder members show their best work in the juried showcase. According to the theme chosen for that year, members of the Guild interpret their reflections in a wide variety of media including weaving, quilting, knitting, crochet, basketry and felting which may be hung on the wall or stand as sculpture on a pedestal.

The Showcase brings visitors the opportunity to see creativity and skilled artisanship up close and personal, and the chance to vote on the “People’s Choice” award for their favorite work.
