FiberShots Community Challenge: Tasty, too!
San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles

San Jose, CA
January 29-April 27, 2014

Join the FiberShots Community Challenge and help support the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles! Use your preferred fiber art medium to translate your food inspiration into a 16” square. The Museum will exhibit all submissions in conjunction with Tasty! too: Food Inspired Quilts, from January 29th through April 27th, 2014.

Entries will be for sale for $100 with all proceeds from your artwork used to support the museum’s fiber art advocacy efforts. The food related theme will inspire lots of creativity, so break out your favorite fiber art media and challenge yourself to get creative and get involved! Your contribution of artwork to FiberShots is an important investment in the Museum’s future and provides fiber art for others to collect and appreciate.

2. Pieces MUST BE 16” x 16”, designed to hang on the wall.
