Mt. Airy Village Fair
Day full of weaving, fiber, and fun @ Wild Hand
While hanging out at the studio we worked on a quick little pibione tapestry! With hand dyed blue roving as bright as the sky, and of course we were feeling the cotton candy fair vibes!
Whichever texture you are going for, the finished product is always stunning! We went for a simple yet effective rustic approach with our fair inspired pibione tapestry. A touch of pink velvet yarn was a great final touch next to the whimsical blue roving tied tassel. You can learn more about pibione on our online classes launching this fall. Join our mailing list for more info!
In all, it was a lovely day. We can absolutely not wait for next year’s fair. We have SO many good times ahead at Wild Hand this fall, and we are looking forward to every magical creative fiber day we spend inside the shop!

Italian for ‘grapes’, pibione is a method of weaving that uses a sick to create a raised pattern in the form of small bumps above the warp. These pibione can be small and close together, creating a tight knit pattern, or large and chunky for a modern textured look!
You are always in for a treat when the day is spent at Wild Hand! Their stock is BREATH-TAKING, and always changing and growing! We had the chance to connect with all of the incredibly talented women who teach workshops at Wild Hand. It was magical to be surrounded with this group of creative power houses. From macrame to embroidery, these ladies do it all! We of course had to selfie the moment! You can check out a full list of lovely workshops here!
