In This Newsletter: Second Saturday Featured Artist,  Clallam County Fair Entries, Application form for September Fiber Exhibition at Studio Bobs

2nd Saturday Downtown Art Walk

Saturday Aug 13 from 5-7pm

Art in the form of knitting by Marca Davies of Port Angeles will be our featured guest for the Second Saturday Art Walk this month.  Marca has gathered skill and experiences from many sources throughout her 61 years of nonstop knitting. From her early work in a Hmong refugee camp in Thailand she learned knitting from Finnish Nurses who introduced her to a speedy method to apply to her Fair Isle projects.  Online resources such as have given her a wealth of insight and resources to draw inspiration.
Many of the pieces on display will feature Cabled Fiber’s own Distracted by Yarn line of independently dyed yarn which draw their color inspiration from locations and objects of Olympic Peninsula.  We are really please how well our yarn has taken off in the last few years.  From Lake Crescent to Lake Quinault, from Lavender to Mountain Lupin, our yarns can now be seen throughout the country in sweaters, socks, cowls and more.  Our color range just keeps expanding with the color inspiration all around us.

Stop by to Say Hello!  The display will only be here on Saturday!
