The Hudson-Mohawk Weavers’ Guild is pleased to invite the general public to its 36th Annual Show & Sale. This yearly event returns to the Pruyn House in Colonie, starting Thursday, November 20 and running through Sunday, November 23.
For four days each November, the Guild takes over the historic Pruyn House and turns it into a showcase for the best of modern handweaving, from traditional to contemporary. Guild members work all year to produce a tremendous variety of handwoven items, from rugs and other homegoods to clothing pieces such as scarves, shawls and jackets. Holiday gifts such as cards and ornaments are also available. Each room in the Pruyn House is devoted to a particular class of items such as linens or scarves and staffed with an accomplished local weaver to assist and answer questions. Admission is free, and visitors can watch fashion shows featuring woven goods or take in demonstrations of handweaving and spinning.
Nearly all of the handwoven pieces on display will also be for sale, with items available at all price points. Experienced artisans will be on hand all weekend to answer questions and demonstrate techniques.
