THREADS OF HOPE by the Fiber Art Network

Opening reception Saturday, December 17 from 1 – 3 pm

Threads of Hope’ by FAN (Fibre Art Network) is an exhibition exploring our hope, longing, and desire for the future of the world.

‘Do you long for a peaceful, harmonious society and healthy earth? Do you desire reconciliation, forgiveness, unity, healing, and balance? Do you hope for positive solutions to any of today’s issues?’

What can one person do when it comes to global issues? Is there hope or hopelessness? It is surprising what can be accomplished if we work together, join forces and play off each other – the butterfly effect.

We need to start paying attention to the world we live in. But where do we start? Can it start with something as simple as a smile? Make somebody’s day and they may make someone else’s day; by passing it forward. Or is it a matter of global awareness of an issue? Or maybe it is an attitude of caring toward strangers or a concern for the health of the earth and your own environment? Is the preponderance of disasters around the world a sign of things to come? Will it get worse or better? Are there too many things going wrong to possibly cure them all?

We challenged our members to speak regarding world issues that are meaningful to them.

These exhibition pieces will flow from one to the other with a ‘thread of hope’ connecting them. Thus, completing a line of artists, and joining forces to improve our world

My guild in Whitehorse (Pine Tree Quilters) is making quilts for survivors of the Residential Schools.  The quilt blocks that I won at the 2021 Loon Lake retreat have been made into one of these quilts.  We have done about 15 of them so far which is great for a guild with about 40 members.

The Christmas party this year will have no food and no free table.  Bring a gift and a strip
