Handmade rugs, socks and scarves on display in Kennewick starting Thursday

A variety of handmade goods that have been woven, knit and crocheted by local artists are now on display at Badger Mountain Yarns in Kennewick.

The Desert Fiber Arts Guild is holding their annual Fall Fiber Arts Show and Sale Thursday, Nov. 7, through Saturday, Nov. 10. The show will feature a large selection of clothing, jewelry and household items. All of the items have been created by DFA members.

“Our members are from all over the state, primarily Eastern Washington,” said Marion Halupczok, president of DFA. “We have folks that grow the alpaca or sheep, shear it, clean it, spin it into fibers and then create beautiful things.”

The items on display range from hand towels to purses to shawls. Some of the pieces are made out of animal fibers while others are made out of plant fibers, like bamboo.

“It’s just an exciting celebration of all the things that you can do with just simple things like sticks and yarn,” said Halupczok.

Badger Mountain Yarns is located at 830 N. Columbia Center Blvd, Suite B2 in the Plaza West Building. Event hours are 5 p.m. on 8 p.m. on Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. Additional parking may be accessed from Colorado Street near Lowe’s.

The Desert Fiber Arts Guild was founded in 1974 and includes artists from a variety of backgrounds. For more information, click here.
