Fiber artists from around Central Oregon will be on hand to demonstrate, exhibit, and sell their work during the 11th Annual Fiber Arts stroll. More than 20 fiber artists share their texttile arts, including quilts, weaving, wearable art, basketry, fabric dyeing, and much more. This is Sisters' most unique Art Stroll--artists will demonstrate their craft, and some will invite you to try your hand as well! Art Stroll maps will be available to pick up at the Sisters Area Chamber of Commerce, the Stitchin' Post, and other participating businesses.
