Art to Wear Show and Sale
I arrived at the Shepard Garden & Arts Center a bit before noon. There was a steady stream of patrons both entering and leaving the building and the adjacent parking lot.
As I made my way around the exhibition rooms, I noted that the large outdoor patio had been the location of the fashion show as rows of chairs were still in place. Mental note to self – attend fashion show next year!
There were a variety of textile goods that were on display that day, but I would venture to guess that jewelry dominated – and some very nice jewelry I might add.
Several vendors had hand-painted silk scarves on display, while others featured items including clothing, purses, bags, handcrafted bound journals, and knitted hats, scarves and socks. There were also some adorable decorative knitted snowmen/women!
To Sum Up
To sum up, the Art to Wear Show and Sale is a great venue to help you start (or perhaps finish) your holiday shopping.
