Celebrating the Loom

The New Hampshire League of Craftsmen is hosting a juried exhibition featuring the work of the NH Weavers Guild at Gallery 205 in Concord, NH.

The exhibit runs until Dec. 11, 2009. On Saturday, December 5, in addition to the exhibit, there will be weavers demonstrating (I think from 11 - 3, but possibly from 10-2).

The NH League of Craftsmen does not have permission from the individual weavers in the show to have photos taken of their work, so I don't have photos of the pieces in the exhibit itself. I was permitted to photograph a woven garment and woven scarf from the permanent collection to share with you in my blog.

There are two full rooms of handwoven items ranging from scarves and towels, to garments, table linens, bags and more. Most items in the show are for sale. Any item purchased can be picked up at the close of the show in December.

If you're in Concord, stop by and have a look! Gallery 205 has free parking in a lot right next to the gallery.

I'll bet it's wonderfully inspiring. Pity you can't take pictures but the ones you did take are great. Love the colors in that scarf especially.

What a great exhibition to visit! The woven garment is just amazing, it looks so soft and light, and has beautiful colors.

I wish I could have shown you what was in the show. There's some amazing complicated weaving going on in our boggles my mind!
