Description:The 15th Biennial Quilt Show and Sale, presented by the San Francisco Quilters’ Guild. Once considered traditional, today quilts are seen as contemporary fiber art. Quilts are displayed in museums, corporate settings, interior design, and private collections, worn as wearable art, as well as in utilitarian use. Why do artists work in fabric? Simple, it is a tactile medium, coming in various colors and prints. Fabric may also be manipulated with dye and stitching to create texture and interest. Ikat is a fabric is woven with pre-dyed threads carefully chosen to create a design. Other fabric is cut, arranged into a design. This show features over 300 new quilts and wearables created by 250 of the San Francisco Quilters’ Guild (SFQG) members and showcases two textile artists: Laura Lee Fritz and Roberta Walker. We have an exciting line-up of special exhibits that make this another great event not to be missed.
