Textile Center Leadership Circle

Leadership Circle membership allows me to be part of an inner circle of makers, appreciators, movers and shakers in the textile and fiber art world. We meet amazing artists who let us in on their creative process and techniques, and we find a thread that connects us through the experiences and passions we share in common.”

Sherri West, Leadership Circle Member for 9 years


The Leadership Circle celebrates Textile Center annual fund donors who support our mission of honoring textile traditions and promoting excellence and innovation in fiber art by making contributions of $500 and above. Because members of the Leadership Circle are invaluable advocates and connectors for Textile Center, we are pleased to recognize their commitment through special events and activities with nationally and internationally renowned artists, as well as opportunities centered on fiber art.

Each level of the Leadership Circle includes a complimentary membership through the next calendar year, plus:

  • Silk Thread (Supporter) – $500: special recognition as Leadership Circle Member, and unique, behind-the-scenes fiber experiences (up to 3)
  • Cashmere (Benefactor) – $1,000: a private studio tour with a fiber artist and a commissioned, limited edition work of fiber art
  • Spun Gold (Patron) – $2,500: an intimate event with an exhibiting fiber artist
