Women Who Run with Scissors

Women Who Run with Scissors is a Fiber Art group based in Green Bay Wisconsin. Our common interests are in creating original pieces of fiber art and enjoying the thread of weirdness that binds us all together. Those same irreverent qualities that got us into trouble in grade school are now finally working to our advantage as we blend our personal visions with the exploration of contemporary surface design techniques.

Women Who Run with Scissors was founded in 1997.

Neville Public Museum - Materialized

What does one huge museum gallery and 80 fiber art pieces have in common?

Visitors - 5000+ visitors came to visit the Neville Public Museum between August 24, and November 10, 2019. In conjunction with the Materialized! exhibit, Women Who Run With Scissors offered seminars for various community organizations. We hosted a number of small private tours, and an art scavenger hunt for Middle School Art students.

Old Maid Revisited

Many of us could remember playing the Old Maid card game as kids, but in our Revisited collection, we selected a modern occupation, a character name, and drafted a very short story. You can read or download the Old Maid Revisited PDF for additional details.
