Our biennial show is now on display at the main branch of the Cleveland Heights-University Heights Library, 2345 Lee Road, Cleveland Heights, OH, until April 10th. Please contact the library for open hours.
This year we are proud to present the third place winner of the Project Tunic competition at the Cleveland Museum of Art as part of our show. Cleveland Heights resident and guild member Victoria Johnson-Parratt won third place in the January competition for her little black dress for which she made shoulder straps, a belt and earrings with 21,215 Delica beads. Her dress has been on display at the Cleveland Museum of Art prior to moving to our show. (Victoria’s work may also be seen here.)
