Date: Saturday, March 13th, 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Location: Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, Simmons Hall (corner of Shady and Fifth Ave)
Admission: $10, Children free

Join in the fun for an Alice in Wonderland card party brought to you by the Fiberarts Guild and PCA! This festive event will feature a special appearance by the Queen of Hearts herself! Attendees will participate in interactive card games, and are welcome to assemble a group to host their own game of choice as well. Children are welcome to attend and will be encouraged to design their own deck (materials provided). Be sure to stop by the Creative Card table for our Castle Challenge to build a tower of your own. Prizes awarded.  Attendees are encouraged to bring a tray of cookies or tea sandwiches to  share. Costumes/festive apparel encouraged, but not required.  The Sleight of Hand deck of playing cards was created as a fundraiser for  the Fiberarts  International 2010. Each of the 52 cards feature  reproductions of fiber works by guild members. Decks of cards will be available for purchase at the time of this event at PCA (attendees are welcome to bring any deck in lieu of the Sleight of Hand deck.) 

The Sleight of Hand show will be installed at Lawrenceville's BE (Borelli-Edwards) Galleries in March. The Show opens March 20, 6:30-9, and runs until May 8. The decks will premier at the opening, with both single and double decks for sale. They will also be available at the Fiberart International opening, the Forum, and other venues to be announced.
