2017 recipient of the
MARGARET GRANT MEMORIAL AWARD
for ELEGANT HANDWOVEN FASHION FABRIC
(woven using no more than four shafts)
This gracefully flowing “Lord of the Rings” cape created by Peggy Siders of Lagro, IN received the Margaret Grant Memorial Award for Elegant Handwoven Fashion Fabric in the Fashion Show at the 2017 Midwest Weavers’ Conference held in Indianapolis, IN.
Peggy wrote that she is honored to have received this award and wishes she could have “known and learned from Margaret Grant…Any guild would love to have a person like her… What a treasure.” Peggy plans to use the award money to pay it forward by creating additional samples for a Color and Weave presentation focused on less experienced weavers. Peggy says that she appreciates people such as Margaret Grant and the Weavers’ Guild of St. Louis who “encourage weavers everywhere”.
