Interwoven Stories Community Stitching Project Participants
October 29 - November 30
Friday, 11/25 – 10am-4pm
Saturday, 11/26 – 10am-3pm
Interwoven Stories is a community-based narrative stitching project created and facilitated by Diana Weymar, the Arts Council’s 2016 Artist-in-Residence. More than 100 3-hole fabric pages, stitched with memories, places, and people, will be assembled together for this one time group show.

The response to this project has exceeded our wildest expectations. Beyond the additional of a final show of all the fabric pages and a catalog book, each page is a gift to the community. They speak to the generosity, diversity, spirit, commitment and creativity of this community.”
-Diana Weymar, Interwoven Stories creator and curator
