The Fort Vancouver Tapestry is a surface design embroidered wool-on-linen textile narrative of the history of Clark County, Washington. We are proud to be able to exhibit this amazing piece of Clark County history.
GOAL of the Challenge:
Our challenge wasto take inspiration from Diana, Princess of Wales, to create own unique art quilts using a limited color palette: pink and white.
Artists were encouraged to push themselves creatively, think outside the box and create new fiber art. The contest was open to anyone and everyone.
All the quilts are the same color, fabric, size and theme, making the exhibit very cohesive and striking.
We are pleased to have this "Rose" exhibit as part of our Quiltfest.
Creative Wearables, an interest group within Columbia FiberArts Guild, will present a collection of items created for 2 of our 2022 Challenges. Both embraced the current popular theme: reuse and rescue. Thus, we created new looks with garments that were either no longer in style or simply no longer fit our bodies or lifestyles. Our May challenge was to deconstruct a favorite and make something NEW. For June we were to take 3 or more gently-used pieces and make them into another WEARABLE garment.

The Art Quilt Group was formed in 2005 and includes a collection of immensely talented women who are willing and happy to share their expertise. We have learned and experimented with fabrics, paints, beads, yarns, stamps, buttons, metal, paper, cord, bleach, and inks. And we’ve had so much fun in the process.
Improv Quilting, Book Interpretation, and Create a New Fabric were the three challenges the members of Art Quilt Group have given themselves during the last year. This year’s Guest Exhibit will include pieces inspired by these challenges.
