“Dreams and Illusions” Regional Quilt Show

Fabrications Quilt Artists, an Inland Northwest group, will offer a juried quilt exhibition, “Dreams and Illusions,” on Saturday and Sunday,
April 26 and 27, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The quilt show will be held at the Jacklin Arts & Cultural Center at the Old Church, an historic structure beautifully restored by the
Post Falls Community Partners into a regional community cultural center.

The fifty juried quilts are each of original design, submitted by area art quilters.

Linda Anderson, textile artist from Colbert, will be the featured artist, with several pieces on display. Anderson creates visual complexity and sculptural depth in fabric,
using a layering process to produce a quilted fabric collage. Starting with a piece of hand-dyed fabric,
Linda lets the beauty of the fabric lead her to the ideas, inspiration and accidents that evolve into her art.
Techniques Anderson employs include silk screening, fiber dyes, embroidery and beading.

The event will include a marketplace, and there will be door prizes. Price of entry is $5.00. For further information, contact Anna Turner at Sew Uniquely You, 509-467-8210.
