Examples include hooked or braided rugs, shuttle tatting, weaving, quilting (no template), tapestries, crocheting, lace, thread sculpture, macramé, artful apparel and more. If you have made or own artful fiber art pieces, please consider submitting a picture of your piece(s) (up to 3 maximum) and an application for it/them to be included in the show. Applications are available online at encoremtmorris.com. Click on the August Art Show button. You may fill out the application online (preferred; attach your digital picture and entry fee) or print the application and send your packet to the Village Hall, 105 W. Lincoln St., Mt Morris. Additional printed applications are available at the Village Hall for those without Internet access. The September show is “Art in the Country,” an art show featuring all kinds of 2D or 3D artworks with a rural or Midwest theme.
