Call for Entry: Blue Ridge Fiber Show (Asheville, NC)

This is a Call for Entry to the Blue Ridge Fiber Show 2014 taking place at the North Carolina Arboretum in Asheville, NC in the fall of 2014. You may have seen some of the ads in recent Handwoven, VAV, Shuttle, Spindle and Dyepot, and Complex Weavers Journal.

 This is an international, biennial show of handweaving, felting, and spinning open to both amateurs and professionals. The theme is “Mountains and Meadows.”

 The show is not juried. We rely upon you to send us your very best work, and we will show it all; however, all entries are judged in their categories for First, Second, Honorable Mention and for various special prizes with specific criteria. These are cash awards. Our judge this year is Lynn Pollard of Broadwovens in Atlanta, GA.

 The Western North Carolina Fiber/Handweavers Guild sponsors the show with its many volunteers. More details including the prospectus, entry forms, and photos of the 2012 show winners can be found at the website: Click on the menu item “blue ridge fiber show” from the home page.
