These artists will talk about their work in the show, along with discussing how their practice in textiles relates to human engagement, interaction, and social discourse.

Techniques include stitching, quilting, knitting, crochet, sewing, weaving, dyeing, felting, needlework, hand construction, polymer clay, lacemaking, basketry, beading, sculpture, mixed media, and more.
