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.

Sacred Threads is made possible by our sponsors. Please support our sponsor eQuilter.com by shopping on their website.



Our CDs of the 2011 show are now half price. The CD includes an overall and detail image of each quilt plus the artist statements. The CD makes a perfect gift or momento of the exhibit. Please note - this is the 2011 exhibit and not the most recent one.

$5.00 plus a flat rate of $2.95
