Warm up with the work of Lana Vosk of Milwaukee, with her handknit sweaters, shawls, hats and scarves. Snuggle up to some of newcomer Erika Mock’s sculptural and animated scarves and shawls made from recycled fibers. Browse coats and jackets, with an exciting variety ranging from Pat Rued’s tailoring to Ann Gainey’s newest Kantha quilt jackets.
Mary Mendla creates stunning Shibori-dyed textiles, accent pieces rich in color and texture. Amy Taylor’s unique and elegant jewelry line features silver and gold pieces, constructed with an emphasis on unique hinge work, stunning gemstones and found objects. Award-winning quilt artist Pat Kroth exhibits a variety of quilted and silk pieces. Ilze Heider showcases expertly crafted leather bags with a wide variety of colorful designs.
