Our A Common Thread member exhibition is always a favorite, featuring a great array of fiber art created by Textile Center’s members. Join us for the Artist Reception, Thursday, January 10, 5:30 – 7:00 pm. Exhibit runs through March 2, 2019.
Now in its 19th year, A Common Thread showcases the breadth and talent of Textile Center members. 122 artworks will adorn the walls of Textile Center’s galleries in an exhibition that is as diverse in technique as it is prolific in scope. Submitted from among nearly 1,000 Textile Center members, fiber art techniques represented will include weaving, quilting, knitting, crochet, sewing, dyeing, felting, needlework, hand construction, polymer clay, lacemaking, basketry, beading, sculpture and mixed media.
To learn about some of the participating artists and their creations, check out our A Common Thread Artist Feature Series on Facebook!

“A Common Thread 2019 brings together Textile Center’s members for this annual celebration of work honoring textile tradition and innovation. This inspirational exhibition highlights the accomplishments of these artists and makers and welcomes all levels of ability and expertise. From colorful and patterned surface design and dyed works; to meticulous stitched and quilted pieces that range from wearable to pictorial to photographic; to weavings that are spontaneous and symbolic; to sculptural forms of gesture and contemplation, the processes of textile practice are broad and the quality of practice runs deep.” — Tracy Krumm, Textile Center’s Director of Artistic Advancement
