Sacred Threads is a juried exhibition featuring art quilts that exude joy, spirituality, peace, grief and healing.
What I love most about Sacred Threads is that it’s non-denominational. So we can celebrate all variations of faith… and you don’t find that combination too often.
My art quilt is Dawson Hill... and I was inspired to make this after I saw a large stone Celtic cross that seemed to be looking out over the cemetery where my dad is buried and it just struck me as this huge sentinel in a place that’s filled with so much meaning and history.
After you work on something like for months, it’s actually hard to part with it. But I felt that Sacred Threads is a wonderful venue to share my art with anyone who cares to see it.
I won't be traveling to Washington to see it, unfortunately. But one of my SAQA friends is going and I am hoping she'll be able to take some pictures for me. If you're in the area, please go see it!
