Tapestry Weavers South presents Follow the Thread at the Folk Art Center
January 14 - May 3
The Southern Highland Craft Guild opened its first Main Gallery exhibition of 2023 on Saturday, January 14. Featuring work by members of Tapestry Weavers South, Follow the Thread features a variety of woven art: geometric tapestry weavings, woven bowls and postcards, framed scenic textiles, and three dimensional faces. Walking through the exhibition of woven art invites the eye to follow the threads within each frame.
Tapestry Weavers South is an organization dedicated to advancing the art and craft of tapestry weaving. In 1996 eighteen people interested in tapestry attended a retreat in Dahlonega, Georgia, that became the initial meeting for a regional organization of tapestry weavers. From that meeting Tapestry Weavers South (TWS) was formed. TWS supports the goals of the American Tapestry Alliance (ATA), a national organization. Their membership includes tapestry weavers of all skill levels, primarily in the southeastern states. However, membership in TWS is open to all individuals with an interest in tapestry.
