The Whidbey Weavers Guild is a community of fiber artists celebrating its 50th year. The Guild’s over 150 fiber arts members range in experience from novice to nationally recognized artists and instructors. Members weave, knit, crochet, spin, dye, surface design, create baskets and jewelry. Some members raise sheep, alpacas, llamas, goats and dogs for fiber production. At the Uncommon Threads sale, you will find fiber arts of all kinds represented including handspun yarn, dyed spinning fibers, rugs, braided or felted jewelry, baskets, clothing and table linens. A variety of woven, knitted, crocheted, felted and spun hand-crafted clothing and home accessories will be featured. A wide range of pricing ensures something special for every budget. The Uncommon Threads sale is a great opportunity to purchase locally hand-crafted products made by Guild members and provides an opportunity for early holiday shopping. Guild members are active in the community with displays and demonstrations in schools, shops, libraries, festivals, and at the Island County Fair. Each April, the Guild hosts a two-day group Spin-In with teaching sessions and vendors for a large audience drawn from neighboring states and Canada.
