January 9 – March 14, 2020

Join us in our Silver Anniversary year for A Common Thread, our annual member exhibition. Always a favorite, this exhibition showcases a fabulous array of fiber art created by Textile Center’s members!

This is the 20th year of A Common Thread, showcasing the breadth and talent of Textile Center members. Each year, over a hundred artworks adorn the walls of Textile Center’s galleries in an exhibition that is as diverse in technique as it is prolific in scope. Techniques include stitching, quilting, knitting, crochet, sewing, weaving, dyeing, felting, needlework, hand construction, polymer clay, lacemaking, basketry, beading, sculpture, mixed media, and more.
