For more traditional quilting, plus a raft of vendors and events, visit the Lowell Quilt Festival,tat the Lowell Memorial Auditorium. I especially recommend the lecture by Beatriz Grayson, a wonderful quilt artist.
At the National Quilt Museum, Maine's Quilt Heritage, an exhibit of quilts dating back to 1804.


At the American Textile Museum, two exhibits. Grace and Glamour: 1930 Fashion features the limpid, sensuous style and the modernism of that decade.

Marking Time: Voyage to Vietnam records how soldiers used marks, including graffiti and stitch, to mark their time on a US transport ship.

At 122 Western Avenue, in Western Avenue Studios, the Loading Dock Gallery is open Wednesday-Sunday, 11-4:30. Explore work by several artists from Western Avenue Studios, as well as the textile art show, Moment of Pure Seeing.
