"Connecting Threads" Quilt and Fiber Arts Exhibit
At Berkeley Art Works

Quilting has grown from its traditional utilitarian form, cozy warmth on chilly fall and cold winter nights, in colonial days to a vibrant eye-catching three dimensional celebration of color and design. The traditional and the new will share the spotlight at this event. Opening reception Saturday, February 15, 5-7pm.
When: Thu February 13 2:45 PM - Sun March 16 3:45 PM
