Woven Treasures of Japan’s Tawaraya Work, New Exhibit at the Textile Museum

At Halcyon Yarn we love sharing our interests and passions for the fiber arts with our customers. As is common with people who share similar interests, there is always talk of new yarns, projects, books, classes, fiber fairs, exhibits and just about anything fiber related.

So here’s the most recent chatter …

The Textile Museum in Washington D C  is a real treasure and worthy of a visit anytime you’re visiting our nation’s capital. They recently opened a fantastic exhibit, Woven Treasures of Japan’s Tawaraya Work. Japanese culture and rich textile history come alive with this exhibit featuring the more than 500 year old Tawaraya workshop and its exquisite silk textiles. You’ll marvel at the 37 pieces, which include both fabric and garments. The exhibit ends August 12, 2012.

On a more local note, The 12th Annual Maine Fiber Frolic, will be held at the Windsor Fairgrounds, June 2 & 3, 2012. This fair celebrates the world of fiber, from its animals to its arts. If you visit you’ll find vendors, fiber workshops and demonstrations, a kids’ area, a fleece show and sale, a used equipment marketplace and fiber animals galore. It’s 100% fiber fun!
