Fiber Art Now is a quarterly magazine for fiber artists.


Winter 2023

In our exciting new issue, you’ll find our eighth annual Excellence in Fibers juried exhibition with 40 artworks that express innovative interpretations of fiber and textiles. Chosen by juror Kate Irvin, curator and head of the Costume and Textiles department at the Rhode Island School of Art Museum, these artworks are sure to please and inspire. The San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles will host the onsite exhibition August 25, 2023 through January 7, 2024.


We are thrilled with the new feature stories in this issue! Canadian artist Lorraine Roy’s raw-edge appliqué is inspired by her Lake Ontario environment. Artists Kristy Kún and Liam Lee create amazing sculptural felted pieces. Our columns highlight five visionary artists working in fibers and textiles. And we announce two recipients of Fiber Art Now grants.

Available to ship now.

What's inside an issue
of Fiber Art Now?

Megan Mosholder


Installations can fill an entire room, hanging from the ceiling or positioned on the floor. Our jurors select installations created with any fiber or textile technique.

Teasy Shiruo Sun


It isn’t only about clothing! Wearables are functional body adornments yet can also be viewed as sculpture. Think apparel, jewelry, and accessories such as hats, scarves, gloves, or shoes.

Dianne Stanton


Viewing vessel and basketry forms have you wondering what they were designed to contain? An object, either purposeful or imagined might be hidden inside. A range of these forms are created with basketry techniques while others are constructed with various fibers.

Hope Wilmarth


Artwork that is mounted on the wall or laid on a floor could be a quilt, a weaving, a tapestry, or a rug. But when they are three-dimensional, they surprise you with their inventiveness.

Kay Sekimachi


Free-standing, hung from the ceiling, or displayed on a pedestal, these three-dimensional artworks enhance both interiors and public spaces.
