Chicago Botanic Garden, Glencoe, Illinois

This weekend, the Regenstein Garden will host the oldest and largest fiber and textile event of the area, sponsored by fiber arts guilds of Illinois. The goals of the Fine Art of Fiber event are to educate and promote working with textiles and fibers, and preserving heritage fiber creations.

The show and sale includes Japanese textiles, quilts, knitting, weaving, dolls, wearable art and jewelry, as well as holiday gifts and fashion shows. The fashion shows begin at 11 AM Friday, November 6th and Saturday, November 7th. Selected items will be on sale in silent auctions from 10 AM until 3 PM daily, and a Raffle will take place on Sunday at 4 PM.

The presentation of fiber heritage includes dyeing with natural dyes, spinning, weaving, quilting and knitting, with a focus on education, awareness and preservation of fiber arts. The show also includes special events – lectures and an exhibition of umbrellas and parasols.

Fine Art of Fiber offers an opportunity to purchase holiday gifts and gain education regarding fiber arts for home crafters as well. Since 1997 the fiber arts show has inspired crafters with beautiful beadwork, stunning quilts and a myriad of needle-working ideas for individual and cottage industries in textile production. Don’t miss this chance to view some of the most beautiful and unique textile artwork imaginable at the Fine Art of Fiber show at Chicago Botanic Garden.
