Event Description

During the month of May, the Lake Superior Fiber Artists will showcase their work in the first floor display case at the Peter White Public Library. The Lake Superior Fiber Artists comprise 4 groups: The Marquette County Quilters Association meets the first Wednesday monthly at 6:30 pm in the Peter White Public Library’s Community Room. The purpose of this group is to share and promote the art of quilting through programs, demonstrations, sewing days, workshops and retreats. Monthly meetings always include a show & tell of quilted items made by members. The UP North Knitting Guild meets the third Thursday monthly, except for July and August, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm in the Peter White Public Library’s lower level. This guild does community knitting and has a class teaching knitters a new craft or skill. Members bring their knitting to each meeting and do a show & tell. Once a year they hold a stash sale for members. The Yarnwinders Fiber Guild meets the second Thursday monthly, except July, August, and December, at 6:30 pm in the Peter White Public Library’s Arts and Culture Center. Their mission is to explore weaving, spinning, felting dying and other fiber arts; educate through monthly programs, public demonstrations and small exhibits; and maintain a history of the guild which dates back to 1946, then known as the “Bluepots.” The Timely Stitchers meet the third Saturday of the month at the Frist Baptist Church on Kaye Ave by NMU at 11:00 am until about 2:00 pm. They meet for the pleasure of doing their own cross stitching along with a little showing and sharing. A fifth section of the showcase will be devoted to collectible items related to various forms of needlework. For more information, visit www.pwpl.info or call 226-4318.
