Wendy Carpenter here at Interfibers Studio Gallery. I am having a special “Holiday Clothing Sale” in Green Bay on November 12th, noon-3pm. The event will be held at Lisa Iapalucci’s house, 1916 Deckner street.
I work with the indigenous weavers of Guatemala, teaching them how to design and sew contemporary garments with their hand weaved jaspe’ fabric. I created my fair trade project “Creating Revenue through the Arts” nine years ago, sewing simple items to now fine crafted apparel. My work with the Mayan weavers provides a specialized skill and higher standard of living for the women, their families, and the Mayan communities as a whole!My 2017 design pictured is an open-cardigan style jacket hand sewed and weaved with rayon and silk thread by the Chajul weavers of Guatemala.
Many of the garments will be marked down to affordable pricing for Christmas gifts! Please join us for wonderful textiles, hors-d'oeuvres, and wine! Lisa & Wendy
