The 2008 small format unjuried show was held in Tampa, Florida and the theme seemed to be related to buried treasure, “Woven Gems.”
The spirit of the group challenge had changed. It was no longer challenging to get people to enter, but still a challenge to get the tapestries finished on time. This year our group had several new weavers, as well as the more experienced ones from previous shows. Thirteen members of the Damascus Fiber Arts School participated in this exhibit.
Our tapestries were gems of a personal nature, including scenery, flowers, birds, pets, places of solitude, pretty girls, as well as a woven gemstone.
