During the month of October, Silk Road Textiles displays small pieces of fiber art (no larger than 5”x7”) in honor of Terry’s mother, Irene Sutton; a sewer, knitter, artist, crafter, and community fiber arts teacher. This year the theme is “Show Us Your Roots”. Get your creative juices flowing and start stitching, felting, weaving, knitting, crocheting, appliqueing, dyeing, or whatever. Show us a bit of your personal history, your national origins, or the part in your hair!
Submit your art (more than one if you like) to Silk Road Textiles by 5:00 PM on Sept. 25 , 2016 to be included in the show. Exhibition dates: Oct. 1-30, 2016. When dropping off your art at the store, please be sure to include your name and phone number, the title of the piece, asking price (or indicate “Not For Sale”), and any artist’s statement you may wish. Download the submission form here. Even if you do not submit a fiber art piece, be sure to stop in to view the exhibition & vote for your favorite pieces.
