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.
