Threadworks 2016: 


A Juried Exhibition of Needle Arts

April 16 to May 29

The theme for 2016 is FLASHBACK. What does that word bring to your imagination? Just how far back does it take you? Whether it's to your own youth, your Grandmother's time or pre-history, anything other than this minute or tomorrow qualifies. Here are a few suggestions: Fashion, Art Deco, Architecture, Environment/Nature/Fossils, Summer Camp, Holidays, Music (e.g. song titles), War, Hippies, Home, Death, Grandma's influence/Ancestors, Weddings, Babies...
