60 Odd/ a Fiber Odyssey is the result of a project that includes fiber artists from around the globe. Each artist started out by selecting their favorite yarn and sent in 61 five yard bundles. In return all received 61 different, five yard skeins of luscious fibers, as diverse as the members themselves. The challenge was to use the yarns in an 8 inch by 8 inch scrumble. Of the 61 original participants who sent yarn, all but 4 sent in finished work. As you will see, some members chose to select only some of the yarns and some used all of the yarns so each person’s voice is uniquely expressed through the choices they made but there is a common thread running throughout.

Just like any great symphony, 60/Odd is about the blend of the entire exhibit. Each note alone is, indeed, beautiful but the harmonic of the show as a whole is its own special song.  And like any fine recipe, we invite you to look at each page and savor the flavors that go into this delicious offering.
