Very Happy To Be in Sacred Threads Again!

I'm so happy to say two of my quilts have been accepted into Sacred Threads 2011 to be held this time around in the Washington DC area June 22- July 4 at the Church of the Epiphany, 3301 Hidden Meadow Drive, Herndon, Virginia. 

Balancing Act and Forrest's Flowers are shown below.

A description of the genesis of  Sacred Threads from their website: "Founder Vikki Pignatelli and the other committee members wanted to create a dignified exhibit of artwork that would touch all those who viewed it on both spiritual and personal levels. We wanted to share the experiences of quilters whose stories would be a source of healing and strength for others by allowing the artist to submit a statement which would be exhibited with the artwork that described the meaning or inspiration for the piece.  We also encourage attendees to complete artist comment forms if they are particularly moved by a quilt - these are returned to the artists with their quilt."

"The Sacred Threads quilts are divided into categories based on theme. These are Expressions of Joy, Spirituality, Inspiration, Grief, Healing and Peace/Brotherhood.  The artwork themes provide thought-provoking insights, encouragement, inspiration and healing responses to grief and human hardships."

  1. Congratulations, Sally. I love the piece "Forrest's Flowers." My cactus with those flowers is just about ready to bloom.
