Friday 11/2, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. + fashion show at 11 a.m.

As I say every year, it's a great show every year! The show is presented by the North Suburban Needlearts Guild, Illinois Quilters Inc., and the Weavers Guild of the North Shore. Soooooo many kinds of fiber art are represented, and soooooo many styles and ideas. In addition to the exhibit itself, there are a boutiques of items made by guild members, a silent auction, and fiber art and quilts for sale.
The Garden is lovely at all times of year, so if the weather is good, plan for an enjoyable walk while you're there.
Admission is free, but the usual Garden parking fee applies. Make it easy on your budget and come with a few friends - the fee is per car.
I'll have two little quilts on exhibit, both in the Something From Nothing series. You can catch a glimpse of them both (and my Egyptian camels) in the photo. One was seen in June at the EvanstonMade show, and one is hot of the presses, completed last night.
All the details are on the Garden website or the show website. The show website also has photos from previous shows, so you out-of-towners can have a virtual visit.
