April/May Artists-Handweavers

NOBO (North of Boston) Handweavers evolved from a spirited collection of fiber artists who gathered for the first time in April of 2008 to simply talk about weaving and see what the outcome would be. Now celebrating its sixth year, NOBO will commemorate the group’s continuing fellowship by displaying handwovens on loan from its members at the Georgetown Peabody Library during the months of April and May. From historical to present day techniques, from natural to man-made fibers, from hand-held looms to room-sized looms, from beginner to seasoned weavers, the display will
illustrate the broad range of interests and skill levels of its members.
