In its thirteenth year, Fiber Arts – Threads Through Time is held at the LIC Clubhouse and at the LIC Marina, in conjunction with the Key Peninsula Farm Tour, the oldest Farm Tour in Pierce County. The Fiber Arts Show features more than two dozen artists who demonstrate, exhibit and sell their work. The full gamut of fibers, utilizing traditional techniques and modern adaptations, is on display during the one day festival. There is music at the Clubhouse throughout the day. The LIC is the shuttle hub for the south loop Farm Tour host sites: Sound View Camp & Environmental Center, and Kaukiki Farm. Shuttle service is provided through School-Bus-Connects.

Inside our unique clubhouse, vendor displays include quilts, hats, bags, handwoven baskets, buttons, clothing, jewelry, rugs, wall hangings, table decorations, hand tooled leather craft, embroidery, wearable art from silk, alpaca fur and wood, Hardanger or whitework embroidery and more! Demonstrator displays include weaving, spinning and cross stitch. Outside on the LIC grounds there are antique tractors to emphasize our connection to the Farm Tour. In addition, local Girl Scout troops demonstrate how to use yard trimmings to build fencing for compost bins. Of special interest, yard art, furniture and wood sculptures are available for purchase.

Only items made by the artists themselves are available for sale. Admission to the event is free. Lunch is available for purchase.

Featured Artist: Nancy Chong

Our 2021 featured artist is Nancy Chong, with work featured in quilting books, magazines, collections and shows across the nation (www.quiltchong.com)

Nancy learned Hawaiian quilting from Margaret Luika Kamaka in Kailua, Oahu, while living there. She says, “I began making Hawaiian quilts in 1978, and immediately became intrigued with the history and folklore; the traditions and superstitions that are interwoven with Hawaiian quilt making and the mysterious story of how they began.” When her family returned to Seattle in 1982, she began teaching Hawaiian quilt making and she has been making traditional and art quilts since. “I’ve made other types of pieced and appliquéd quilts, but Hawaiian quilts remain my passion.
