We are in search of those heirloom pieces that personify your families’ history in the fiber arts. All forms of handmade fiber items (i.e. quilts, rugs, doilies, clothing, needlepoint, pillows, baskets, etc.) will be accepted from volunteers, board members, and the general membership of FACES. Items should be clean and odor free. Accepted items will be on display in the gallery April 5th to June 17th, 2017. With a special reception to be held on Mother’s Day May 14th, 2017.
