Sharon Janda, an accomplished felter, designer and owner of Wild Plum Designs http://wildplumdesigns.com/
index.cfm, unexpectedly passed away earlier this year. Her vast collection of high-quality fiber materials will be sold at a series of events, the first of which is July 10-11, 2015.
Please do not contact Sharon’s family, who is generously donating the proceeds to establish an educational fund in Sharon’s honor. Members of Sharon’s felting group are coordinating all sales for the family.
This collection is of special interest to felters, quilters, weavers, knitters/crocheters, mixed-media artists, and other fiber/fabric fanatics.
This first sale will feature
- Hundreds of large spools/cones of yarns: $5.00 per large cone, $3.00 per small.
- A very large amount of hand-dyed and commercial spinning and felting roving, primarily Merino.
- Knitting yarns, including many lots of multiple skeins of the same dye lot in the original manufacturer packaging.
- Fabrics: yardage of silks, cottons, and other fibers.
- Vintage kimonos.
- Buttons: collectible, vintage and contemporary, single beauties and high-quality sets
- Commercial felt
- Laces, both vintage and new
- Chenille bedspreads
- and much more
Many items, including all the spools of yarns, will be available in the garage, while other items will be inside her studio. There is a limit of 20 people inside the studio due to space constraints. As the space in the garage opens up, items from the studio will be placed inside the garage for greater accessibility.
Cash, checks, and credit cards will be accepted. Please bring your friends and pass this email on to others.
No early birds. Parking is along the street. The address is 11700 Lake Potomac Drive, Potomac, MD. Please, out of respect for the family, do not contact the family.
There will be a sale at the October Potomac Fiber Arts Guild meeting (go to http://www.
potomacfiberartsguild.org/ guild/page01.shtml ) which will include Sharon’s wonderful wearable art clothing and some of the high-end work she collected from other fiber artists.
