International Textile Art on Display
AN INTERNATIONAL TEXTILE ART EXHIBITION IS TOURING AUSTRALIA!
50 exhibition art quilts celebrate the SAQA group’s 25th anniversary and are one of eight trunk shows that are travelling the world until 2017.
Trunk Show G which will tour Australia includes internationally renowned art quilters such as Diane Firth (Australia), Hsin-Chen Lin (Taiwan), Alicia Merrett (England) and Cynthia St Charles (USA). The trunk show is a wonderful way to view and engage with quilts made using a wide variety of styles, techniques, and fibres by many who are considered masters in their field.
