Fiber Journals

What is a fiber journal?

Idea is that you make one small quilt each month that reflects something of your life that month. Participants are also encouraged to keep an informal diary of notes, reflections and influences on their work for each month.

The small size is meant to encourage experimentation with color, images, composition, materials, techniques.

The journal quilt “movement” was started by Karey Bresenham through QuiltArt e-mail list. You can view some of the original journal quilts at: www.quiltart.com/journals.html

“Rules” are minimal—size (8-1/2” x 11”), vertical orientation, 2 or more layers of fabric, able to be hung.

See more fiber journals in Ann's Gallery. An on-line fiber journal gallery is coming soon.


Why join our Fiber Journal Group?

Get out of the house to a place where you'll have no interruptions to block your creative juices...(and where someone else will clean up if you make a mess).

Expand your repertoire of techniques; generate new ideas by sharing with others who have unique skills and experiences; stretch and grow as an artist.

Meet new people who share your interests and will nurture your creativity.

Experiment without a major investment in materials.

The tea kettle is always on and there are often treats to share.
