PORT TOWNSEND – Vintage Japanese clothing and shoes, kites, new handbags made from vintage obis and silk yardage are now on display in a window on Tyler Street in Port Townsend.
Artists from Bainbridge and Port Townsend are featured in Gale Investment Management’s Peninsula Fiber Artists 24/7 Touring Exhibition at 675 Tyler St., Port Townsend.
Through August, the “Fiber Habit” exhibit includes vintage kimonos, a haori jacket, a yukata sundress, the kimono belts known as obis, and wooden shonon shoes collected by Donna Lee Dowdney from Bainbridge Island and Sue Gale and Leslie Dickinson from Port Townsend.
Gale and Dickinson also used vintage clothing fabrics to create new items.
Fiber artists from Kitsap, Jefferson and Clallam counties participate in the traveling exhibit, which changes every two months, and monthly meetings that rotate between venues on the Olympic Peninsula.
The August meeting will be from 1-4 p.m. at the Jefferson County Library, 620 Cedar Ave. in Port Hadlock. The group is also creating an exhibit that opens Saturday at Wilderbee Farm’s Meadery, 223 Cook Ave. Ext., Port Townsend.
