Members of the Waterford Weavers Guild demonstrated textile craft at an open house at the Artisans United Craft Gallery March 7. The gallery, at 4011C Hummer Road in Annandale, not only has a shop with high-quality items made by the region’s top artisans, but also occasionally hosts public receptions and demonstrations presented by one of the 10 craft guilds featured at the gallery.

The Waterford Weavers Guild, founded in 1973, promotes the fiber arts, such as weaving, spinning, dyeing, knitting, and crocheting. Works by guild members, including hats, ponchos, jackets, scarves, blankets, table linens, and wall hangings, will be on display at the Craft Gallery throughout March and April.

The next open house, the first Saturday in May, will commemorate “the special people in our lives” and will feature items for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, brides, and graduates, said Karen Bowes, of the United Artisans Craft Gallery.

The Craft Gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday noon-4 p.m.
