WEDNESDAY JULY 26 ~ SATURDAY JULY 29TH
AT MICHIGAN FIBRE STUDIO!
Come discover the wondrousness of Mishael Mathias’ creations. You will find color galore on three different fingering weight yarn bases, a DK yarn & three different types of roving. You won’t believe the softness and beauty of the Yakaty Yak line. A blend of Merino, Yak & nylon which has taken the color in a unique way. You have to see and feel it for yourself!
MFS Fiber Art Exhibition
We are looking to showcase locally made Fiber Art pieces to have in the shop during ArtPrize which runs September 20th through October 8th.
ArtPrize brings in a lot of people from all over the country. Even though Eastown is too far out to be an ArtPrize venue, visitors come to Eastown as a shopping destination and many wander into the shop. MFS is looking to extend the art experience with our own Fiber Art Exhibition!
We are looking for large fiber art pieces that can be hung above the picture rail to the ceiling and be viewed from the floor. If you are interested in submitting a smaller piece, we are open to that as well.
In true art exhibition fashion, we are looking of artist statements about the piece. What inspires you. What moves you. What makes you create.
Space is limited. Time is short. Deadline for application is July 31st. Deadline for Art Installation is September 12-16.
Please stop in or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details!

Do you have a suggestion for a class that you would take? We are always open for teaching what you want to learn ~ drop us a line, give us a call, or stop in the Studio and we would love to set up a private lesson for you. Do you and your friends want to learn a new technique? We can do small group lessons too!
