Fiber artist Peg Schroeder was immediately captivated by the combination of symmetry and creativity when she began weaving in 2014, creating wearables and wall art, plus household items such as table runners, towels, and rugs. Often inspired by nature, her traditional fiber choices include bamboo, alpaca, and wool. Peg also gives renewed life to recyclable objects such as silk saris, roofs, chairs and beyond. Come enjoy Peg’s work at Edgewood Cottage from July 25th through July 31st.
