New Project by the Fiberistas on display at TAUNY

See the latest fiber arts project by the Fiberistas, an innovative group of North Country quilters whose projects challenge them to experiment with new techniques and explore the potential of quilts as art.

This quilt, made up of unique panels by each quilter, is a landscape challenge, connecting foreground, center field, and background of each slice with a shared horizon line across the project.

In addition to having the collaborative quilt on display at The TAUNY Center through Oct. 24, TAUNY (Traditional Arts in Upstate New York) is sharing a series of videos of the Fiberistas talking about their work on this new project over the time the quilt is on display. Follow on FacebookInstagram, and/or YouTube to see the series.
