FIBRE ARTS SHOW OPENS
The Annual Fibre Arts Show at the Fairview Fine Arts Centre opened Saturday. Fibre arts includes sewing, weaving, knitting and crochet arts and the exhibit includes a large number of quilts. If the techniques involved in cutting fabric into little pieces, then sewing them together in complex patterns and quilting them with layers of cotton batting and another layer of material isn't enough for you, some artists include other items into the quilts - rocks, jewellery, mementos from past events or trips - to make a quilt that can take quite some time to see and appreciate everything that went into it.
