In today’s world considerable time and energy are involved in making and maintaining connections—physical connections, business connections, family connections, emotional connections. Making connections also plays a vital role in creating fiber art. Fibers and other materials can be connected using particular techniques such as binding, strapping, wrapping, lacing, weaving, sewing, knotting, zipping, etc.

There is a catalog of the exhibit available for purchase for $20. It will be shipped to you. To order your copy, please fill out the Making Connections catalog order (pdf) and send it with your check to:
