Enjoying the contemporary fiber arts scene



We are a group of 7 seeking expression and taking delight in textiles and fabric. Working together since 2001, we experiment in color, form and design ---- sometimes around a common theme but more often pursuing our individual vision. Our skills and interests vary but we learn from each other, offer critique and support, and expand our horizons. Patt Bagdon, Mary Ann Boddum, Sandi Goldstein, Anne Burns Johnson, Jo Magaraci, Lisel Schwartzenbach, Susan Taylor


Patt Bagdon I am currently showing new work at the Colusa County Arts Council Gallery in downtown Colusa. It is a joint show with Louise Shiele through April. I love playing with fabric and surface design. My inner romantic has created a series of Italian landscape quilts--inviting escapist places .
Anne Burns Johnson In my textile work, I try to capture, convey and create the idea of transformation and change. I like how scraps become whole, how shadows convey shapes, how images dissolve and re-emerge. Personally, I ricochet from experimentation to tradition and back at warp speed.
Sandi Goldstein I made my first quilt over 25 years ago. Textiles have always had a hold over me –the texture, colors, and tactile quality of fiber. As a feminist from an early age, I’ve always appreciated women’s quilting tradition –the collaborative process, comfort in sharing our lives through cloth, support for each other in our personal as well as artistic growth and a shared passion to express ourselves through textiles.
Jo Magaraci I admit it, I am a fabric floozy. I am attracted to textiles in all shapes and forms - sensuous silks, soft fuzzy velvets, rough but warm woolens - all tempt me to fondle them and bring me pleasure. From vintage scraps that are fragile and muted to ethnic prints and weaves that are vivid and graphic –I have loved them all.
Susan Taylor I love fabric. I love seeing it, touching it, and working with it. I love seeing the countless ways fabric changes depending on how it is cut, arranged and sewn.
Lisel Schwarzenbach Textile-oriented since I was 6, when I made velvet and lace pin-cushions for my Grandmother and Aunts, I’ve dyed fabric, painted it, stamped and stenciled it, torn it, cut it, sewn it, worn it and quilted it, out of love for the medium.
