I have been a member of the Madison Contemporary Fiber Artists since September of 2017.
Madison Contemporary Fiber Artists (MCFA) is a group of 40+ diverse fiber artists from the Madison and southern Wisconsin area who share a passion for creating original art from fiber. Originating in 1999 as a collective for fiber artists, the group continues to pursue its dual mission: to foster the growth of members by providing a forum to explore contemporary design and fiber manipulation techniques, to offer advice about works-in-progress, and to stimulate creativity. The public part of our mission–to promote fiber as an art form–is accomplished primarily through group exhibitions and occasional public workshops.
MCFA artists’ work currently includes art quilts, surface design, beading, paper making, thread painting, hand embroidery, weaving, contemporary dolls, wearable art, felting, hand stitching, fabric dyeing, and mixed fiber media.
Through MCFA I was given the wonderful opportunity to submit quilts for two different exhibits. The first one (ending 2/8/19) is “Explorations” at the Monroe Clinic in Monroe, Wisconsin. This is the quilt I have on display.
The second display is at the Anderson Art Center, 6603 3rd Avenue, Kenosha, Wisconsin. The exhibit continues until March 3rd. On display are Ithese two pieces.
I feel so fortunate to have this opportunity! If you have the chance to stop by make sure you find my quilts. They are located on the second floor of the museum.

Hi Cindy! How cool and exciting. I could possibly make it to the Kenosha exhibit but probably not the Monroe one. ~smile~ Roseanne
