Uncommon Threads

  Uncommon Threads

Uncommon Threads is a regional group of fiber artists working in the contemporary art quilt medium. Our mission is:

-To provide a forum for regional art quilters to share their ideas in an atmosphere of creative dialog, networking, and mutual inspiration.

-To provide opportunities for skill development and encouragement of new artists in the field.

-To participate in the promotion, appreciation, and recognition of art quilting as a visual art form.

An Art Quilt is a piece of highly collectable artwork. It is not designed for use on a bed like a traditional quilt; it is meant to be hung on the wall like a painting, and like a painting or other work of art, the design may be abstract, representational, or figurative.

Artists using fiber as their medium may dye, paint, cut, tear, or fuse the fabric or other fibers as part of their work. They may embellish it with beads, buttons, photos, or found objects. Hand-stitching, embroidery, or machine-quilting also gives the work a dimensional interest that mere paint cannot.
