On December 3 and 4 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., quality legacy works by dozens of fiber artists from Sonoma, Lake, and Marin counties will be available at the Luther Burbank Art and Garden Center, 2050 Yulupa Avenue, Santa Rosa. Guild members will be on hand to answer questions and demonstrate hand weaving, fleece spinning and knitting.
Using a variety of techniques, our designers fashion contemporary designs for table linens, towels, rugs, tapestries, wall hangings, scarves and other garments. In addition to natural wool and cotton fibers, many items are created with luxury fibers such as silk, alpaca and cashmere. Items for sale come in a variety of price points and always include a wide variety of distinctive textile art. Co-Chair Bill Jackson describes the scope as “everything from wool dryer balls to silk scarves.”
Throughout the year, the Guild pursues its mission to encourage the art and enjoyment of fiber crafts through exhibits and demonstrations at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds, educational farm days for schoolchildren and educational programs for members and guests.
Recently, a mixed media fiber triptych, “Phoenix Rising: Sonoma Strong,” was installed in the lobby of the Sonoma County Administration Building. The hands of 24 Guild artists helped shape the response to the 2017 fires.
The RGFA Holiday Sale caps off the year with an opportunity for the community to view and purchase members’ work. Every year, many who attend the sale comment that they have found the perfect gift for a loved one or for themselves.
