The Fiber Artists Coalition (FAC) is an affiliation of fiber and textile artists from the upper Midwestern United States who collaborate in securing opportunitiesfor member artists' work to be exhibited in venues throughout the United States. Members of the FAC employ a variety of innovative materials and techniques in the creation of fiber art with a contemporary edge.
Conversations in Stitch are works created from commercial fabric and some that are created by the artists. Some of the techniques FAC members use are: dyeing, painting, stamping, printing, batik, shibori, discharge, embellishment, collage, and assemblage. Many of their works are hand or machine stitched and/or quilted. Fiber is organic, and fiber art is vibrant, alive, warm and inviting.
All of the artists have achieved Professional Artist Member status within Studio Art Quilts Associates, Inc. (SAQA). Studio Art Quilt Associates, Inc. is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote the art quilt through education, exhibitions, professional development and documentation.
