Sacred Threads is an exhibition of quilts exploring themes of spirituality, joy, inspiration,
peace/brotherhood, grief and healing. This biennial exhibition was established to provide a safe venue for quilters who see their work as a connection to the sacred and/or as an expression of their spiritual journey.
The objective is to create a dignified exhibition of artwork that touches on both spiritual and personal levels all those who view it. We want to share with others the experiences of quilters whose stories may be a source of healing and strength.
Entries to Sacred Thread Exhibitions are juried in by
images for purposes of space and suitability of theme only. Works are not judged.
