Sacred Threads Omaha


The Sacred Threads exhibit in Omaha, NE, features 39 pieces from the Sacred Threads 2013 exhibit. A quilt lover in Omaha, Teri Quinn, has always dreamed of bringing the show to Omaha and is making it happen for 2013.

A jury of three art quilt enthusiasts selected 39 pieces from our pool of 231 accepted artworks in the 2013 exhibit.

The show is in the beautiful Sunderland Gallery.


The exhibit will run for 8 weeks, Sept 15-Nov 10, 2013. The last art quilt exhibit in this gallery brought in 3,000+ visitors. This is a great opportunity for art lovers in the middle of the country to see our fabulous quilts first hand.

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.
