The Seattle Weavers’ Guild presents their annual sale this week, starting Thursday evening on Capitol Hill. If you are already planning to be out for a Thirsty Thursday drink or (naturally) for Lit Crawl 2016, detour to St Mark’s Cathedral to see handmade treasures from expert artisans. As for enthusiasts of the medium and local art and craft, it’s definitely not to be missed this weekend.

Thousands of objects will be on display for the three days of the sale. It’s a perfect place to find unique gifts in advance of holiday shopping. Now that autumn is fully arrived, it’s also a great shopping for things to layer and accessorize. There is also seasonal and year-round decor, to boot. For those who do their own crafting, there will be hand-spun and hand-dyed yarns, weaving and spinning tools, handwoven fabrics and handmade buttons.

The Seattle Weavers’ Guild is in the top five largest weavers’ guilds in the country. Proceeds from the sale fund the guild’s volunteer outreach program and bring international fiber artists and surface designers to Seattle to educate local audiences. Learn more on the guild’s official website.
