Clean out your studio–it’s potluck time!

Potluck 4_edited-1 The holidays are over, it’s cold, snowy, and gray — so you know it’s gotta  be time for our potluck fundraiser at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts!  This annual event is one of our most cherished traditions.  Just when the doldrums of winter start to settle in, we gather together.  We clean out our studios, bookcases, and cabinets then pack up the surplus supplies for the Paperbag Auction. This year we’re spotlighting YARN so make sure you bring along any extra from your personal stash. And don’t forget books, patterns, tools, and other temptations. It’s all good!

Potluck 3We donate our beautiful artwork, fine crafts, dyed fabric, hand-crafted jewelry and wearables, plus our skills and services to the Silent Auction.  AND we bring a dish to share because no guild function is complete without tasty treats.

On Saturday, January 30th 10:00 am – 3:00 pm you can catch up with your pals, meet new members, and take home intriguing new treasures — for next to nothing! Auction tickets (5 for $1) raise money for guild programs and exhibitions. Guests are free, the more the merrier.

Potluck 2Don’t forget to bring address stickers for your auction tickets and a tote bag for your winnings, along with your potluck dish and studio supplies.

After lunch, you’ll get the latest scoop on Fiberart International and In Bloom and see where you can fit into our big event of 2016. Your fellow members would love to have your help. Mark your calendar and come prepared to schmooze, shop, and snack!
