Textile Center is unique as America's only national center for fiber art. Community resources include exceptional fiber art exhibitions, classes for all ages and skill levels, an artisan shop, professional-grade dye lab, natural dye garden, and the largest circulating textile library in the country.
Incorporated in 1994, Textile Center was originally formed by a group of fiber artists and arts patrons desiring a place to come together and celebrate the region's vibrant textile community. Fiber art encompasses a wide range of forms, both creative and crafted, including weaving, quilting, knitting, sewing, dyeing, felting, needlework, lace making, basketry, beading, soft sculpture and multi-media pieces.
With a mission to mission to honor textile traditions and promote excellence and innovation in fiber arts, Textile Center is a dynamic hub for people to come together and create, learn, share, explore, and be inspired by fiber art.
