New England Weavers' Seminar:  Shows and Exhibits

Gallery Show & Fashion Show

The Gallery and Fashion Shows are juried exhibits in which weavers of member guilds show their work; entrants do not have to attend NEWS to participate.  Weavers may enter three pieces in each show.  All work must be at least 75% handwoven and completed since NEWS 2017.  All pieces are judged, and ribbons, prizes, and points toward Weaver of Distinction are awarded.  Each entry  receives constructive comments from the judges.  A People's Choice Award is given, so be sure to cast your ballot.
