Good morning and happy Thursday! From today through Sunday, the Pruyn House in Colonie plays host to the Hudson Mohawk Weavers’ Guild’s annual Show and Sale. There is a ridiculous amount of skill and artistry to be seen at this event, and if you are looking for something special for yourself or for a gift, you should not miss this. Handwoven garments, scarves, shawls, and other accessories, as well as towels, blankets, rugs, and a multitude of other items for the home are on display throughout the Pryun House.
Check out this slide show by one of the guild members.
There will be a fashion show of handwoven items and spinning and weaving demonstrations throughout the weekend. I recall in past years they have used the schoolhouse building for more demonstrations and vending but I am not sure if that will be the case this year. So much heart and soul and years of practicing their craft goes into into every item, and the money spent stays close to home, and supports local artists and artisans. Weather permitting, the grounds of the Pruyn House are beautiful and worth exploring while you are there. I encourage you to check it out.
I’ll be taking a little road trip with my sweet Halo this weekend, and I will have more on that this Saturday. Have a great weekend!
