I am excited that the Co-op will be hosting the wonderful and colorful rugs of Polly Walker during October and November. There will be a chance to meet and talk with Polly and see her rugs on Friday, October 13, from 5 – 6:30 p.m. The show will continue through Wednesday, November 8.
Polly Walker has lived in Moscow since 1994. She came here from Coeur d'Alene where she operated a restaurant, coffee shop, and retail store. In Moscow she has run a catering business, and also worked for Hagadone Directories as a sales executive and market manager. Now retired, she has time and energy to put into art.
You may have seen Polly at the Moscow Saturday Farmers Market selling organic dip sauces, salad dressing mixes, and rugs. Rugs have become her main focus.
Polly's unique one of a kind rugs are all hand “twined” on a small loom. They are made of polar fleece material, mostly upcycled, each rug taking over ten yards of fabric to make. They are very durable, machine washable and dry-able. They will not shrink or fade. And in addition to all these good things, they are very attractive.
I know you will enjoy seeing these very practical works of art. They will all be on sale and can be purchased at any point during the run of the show.
Come in on the evening of Friday, October 13, and meet Polly, and continue to enjoy the show through Wednesday, November 8.
