Open Studios

Ever wanted to see artists work in real time right before your eyes? Open Studios on aisles J&K is a structure with four individual studios in the categories “Embellish/Paint,” “Stitch/Sew,” “Quilt,” and “Knit/Crochet/Etc.”

 

During show hours, four artists will be working simultaneously (two hours at a time) in each of the rooms, demonstrating their craft. Come by Open Studios on the show floor and be inspired by what these top-notch artists are doing!
