Linda George

I love the color, texture and feel of fibers in my hands and the connection to women down through the ages.  Those women spun, wove and knitted of necessity, whereas I can do this for the sheer pleasure of creating.

Most of my weaving is functional and I hope it also brings some beauty to everyday settings; towels or placemats for the kitchen, rugs for the home or some wearable art in scarves or shawls.

I have entered many gallery shows at Liberty Town Arts Workshop, including the annual Patron’s Show; Artful Dimensions first juried show this spring; and Fiber: Exploring Today and Remembering Yesterday at the Verizon Gallery on the Annandale Campus of Northern Virginia Community College.

Awards:  Ribbons for handspun yarn at Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival, 

              Montpelier Fall Fiber Festival and Southeast Animal Fiber Festival in 

              North Carolina.

              Liberty Town Arts Workshop Patron’s Show – third prize for a woven 

              wall hanging.

     

Liberty Town Arts Workshop show “Summer Solstice, 2017”  – Honorable mention for woven lace shawl
