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”.

By the end of the day on Monday, September 19, we had 30 pillowcases made for the Million Pillowcase Challenge Sew-a-thon. Since then, twelve more pillowcases have been turned in, for a total of forty-two pillowcases so far! We donated 38 pillowcases to the Interfaith Hospitality Network to be distributed to families experiencing short term homelessness. If you made any pillowcases to donate, you can drop them off at the store next time you are here.
