“I hope you can join us as we converge in the heart of Sister Bay for our annual fiber fest and sisterhood reunion this weekend,” says organizing fashion artist Sue Donohoo.
Owner of Soo Hoo Artwear, Sue Donohoo, is hosting the show with her own sculptural scarves and versatile accessories. Jewelers Polly Daeger and Hedda Lubin will display their distinct styles using copper, brass and sterling. Door County’s own Angela Lensch will be joining the group for the fashion show and reception at 5:30 pm on Saturday with her woven, sculptural jewelry of precious metal, gemstones, pearls, beads and more.
Ten artists from across the country will converge in the heart of Sister Bay for a fiber fest and sisterhood reunion. Mona! will feature her funky, recycled jackets and sweaters. Mary Mendla of Facets Fashions will take a different tone by emphasizing impeccable fit and flair with her Basic Elements and seasonal line. Pat Rued‘s hand-painted and dyed jackets, coats and vests are expertly tailored with many made to order. Hand painting and dyeing are also components of constructions by Gabriele and Kathy Skomsky. Judy Ritter will display her exotic yarns and combinations of yarn, fused glass, semi-precious stones and raku.
The two-day event will take place Saturday and Sunday, August 20 from 10 am – 7 pm and August 21 from 10 am – 4 pm. The Fashion Show and Reception will take place at 5:30 pm on Saturday August 20.

Meet Hedda Lubin
Hedda selects pieces of sterling sliver, copper and brass that catch her eye to construct her collection of bracelets, earrings, pendants and pins. During the creative process, the shapes flow together and the firing brings out unexpected lines and colors that take her in a new direction. Hedda believes that each bracelet or pendant is made just for the person who wears it.
“Someone looks at these very individual pieces and says, ‘That one!’ That moment of recognition means that it was made for her.”
