This biennial, international juried show on themes of spirituality, joy, inspiration, peace/brotherhood, grief and healing show does not emphasize any particular religion or theology but conveys the spirituality, healing and inspirational messages that transcend all people. The timeless quilts in Sacred Threads 2015 represent an artistic look at the deeper side of life; each quilt is the artist's respond to a strong feeling inspired by powerful experience: delight and despair, connection and injustice, hope and tragedy, life and death. There are celebrations of the beauty of Earth and of our common human experience around the world. There are colorful expression of spirituality and religious devotions from a variety of faith traditions, some made particularly as liturgical hangings. The Fiber Artist for Hope group was a challenge to quilters to respond to the killing of Trayvon Williams, and the racial injustice present in our own society.
