The Show will feature silk scarves and wearable art in hand-dyed glowing colors, contemporary art quilts and mixed media wall pieces, beaded jewelry, handmade textile home décor, and unique gifts.

Surface design is the creative exploration of fiber and fabric. The one-of-a-kind artwork blends collage, weaving, felting, beading, basketry, hand-dyed fabric and contemporary quilting in cutting-edge combinations.

All members of the local art group are also members of the international Surface Design Association. Since its start in 2008, the group has grown to over 32 members, and will continue its show schedule at the Latimer Quilt and Textile Museum, Tillamook, OR (September 2 thru November 3) and at the La Conner Quilt and Textile Museum, La Conner, WA (January thru March 2014).
