From Our Hands: A Makers Show highlighted the amazing fiber art created by members of Columbia FiberArts Guild.  This one-day event included an exhibit of 2 and 3D Art, a Fashion Show organized by CFG Wearables Special Interest Group and an Artists market where members were able to sell a variety of smaller art pieces.  The neighborhood, community and members attended in larger than projected numbers garnering accolades and sales.  Planning is under way for another event in 2019 for the 50th Anniversary of the organization.

Columbia FiberArts Guild (CFG) artists continue their rich heritage of promoting the fiber arts as a feature show in NW Quilt Expo’s 2015 Exhibition. The exhibition, entitled “A River Runs Through It,” showcases original designs that visually express sentiments about the rivers in their lives while embracing the overarching Quilt Expo theme of Living in the Pacific Northwest. Whether a river is a metaphor or a landscape, the artistry of CFG members will excite and enlighten NW Quilt Expo 2015 attendees.
