The Whidbey Weaver’s Guild 15th Annual Uncommon Threads Sale will be on Friday and Saturday November 2 and 3rd at the Nordic Hall at 63 Jacobs Road, about 1 mile south of Coupeville, WA.

The Whidbey Weavers Guild is a community of fiber artists with roots back to the mid 1960s. Today the Guild has over 160 members ranging from beginner to production weavers and fiber artists, some of whom are nationally recognized artists and teachers; as well as members who raise sheep, alpacas, llamas, goats and dogs for fiber production.

 

The Uncommon Threads Sale is a great opportunity to do early holiday shopping and purchase locally hand-crafted products made by Guild members. You will find a wide range of woven, knitted, crocheted, felted and spun hand-crafted clothing and home accessories. Fiber arts of all kinds are represented offering hand-spun yarn, dyed spinning fibers, rugs, braided or felted jewelry, baskets, clothing and table linens. A wide range of pricing ensures something special for every budget.

 

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.

 

Celebrate the creative fiber arts on Whidbey Island and visit the Uncommon Threads Sale!

Things to do

I’ve always loved to fly. I grew up in a family of pilots – my dad was a bush pilot in Alaska and his brother, my uncle Don, retired as a 747 pilot. They built kit planes growing up, and I inherited that same fascination with flying.

The Orchard Kitchen, which opened this past July, is the culmination of a vision that owners Vincent and Tyla Nattress created years ago when they were living in Napa Valley, California. They made a “Vision Board” that was a picture of how they wanted to live and how they wanted to make a living. The first need was to find a place in a beautiful setting with affordable land where they would have a farm to grow the crops for a unique farm-to-table experience.
