PORT TOWNSEND — Vintage Japanese garments and shoes, kites, new handbags crafted from vintage obis and silk yardage are on view now in a window on Tyler Street in Port Townsend.
Bainbridge and Port Townsend artists are featured in the 24/7 walk-by exhibit by Peninsula Fiber Artists at Gale Investment Management at 675 Tyler St., Port Townsend.
Up through August, the “Fiber Habit” exhibit includes vintage kimonos, a haori jacket, a yukata summer-weight robe, the kimono sashes known as obis, and shonon wooden shoes collected by Donna Lee Dowdney of Bainbridge Island and Sue Gale and Leslie Dickinson of Port Townsend.
Gale and Dickinson also used vintage garment fabric to create new items.
Fiber artists in Kitsap, Jefferson and Clallam counties participate in the walk-by exhibit, which changes every two months, and in monthly meetings that rotate between Olympic Peninsula locations.
The August meeting is 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Jefferson County Library, 620 Cedar Ave. in Port Hadlock. The group is also creating an exhibit that opens Saturday at Wilderbee Farm’s Meadery, 223 Cook Ave. Ext., Port Townsend.
