This fall, in St. Louis and beyond, you’ll get a chance to walk among life-size, quilted totem poles. You can learn how to dye a silk scarf in the microwave, study a collection of antique kimonos or enjoy a fashion show of repurposed materials.
Artists from across the country and around the world will show off contemporary fiber art, textiles and fashion at Innovations in Textiles 2019, a collaborative event comprising more than 45 art galleries, organizations and museums. Most are in the St. Louis area, but participation extends to Columbia, Mo., and Mount Vernon, Ill. The exhibits and events wrap up in November.
As you’ve probably guessed, these are not your grandma’s sewing projects.
