Sacred Threads (Washington DC) – Call for Entries Opens Jan 9, 2011

Call for entries will be open January 9 - March 9, 2011

Open to ALL quilters in the United States and Canada.  Click here for the show prospectus.


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.

The 2011 show will be juried by Sue Reno, Sue Pierce and Diane Herbort.

Special Announcement: Sacred Threads is adding a separate, special exhibit call for entries for the 2011 show. We are looking for liturgical pieces that are 18"- 60" wide and 30" in length. The host venue, Church of the Epiphany, is interested in purchasing pieces for permanent installation. Click here for the details.

Sacred Threads 2011 will be in the Washington D.C. area from June 22, to July 4, 2011.

Lisa Ellis and Christine Adams (Co-Chairs)
