A Common Thread

Virtual Exhibition

Textile Center Galleries • August 1 – October 14, 2023

A Common Thread, our annual member exhibition, returns for its 23rd year — and this is our BIGGEST year of the exhibition yet! Always a favorite, this exhibition showcases a fabulous array of fiber art created by Textile Center’s innovative members.

Each year, over a hundred artworks (this year, 166!) 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.
