You're bound to be amazed
First held in 1995, stitched and bound is a biennial exhibition of innovative and contemporary quilts by Western Australian quilters and artists. This year's exhibition, the 11th, promises to be the largest in the exhibition's history with 45 entrants submitting 60 quilts, and the jury selecting 36 for the public showing.

Showcasing the work of some of West Australia's most exciting textile artists, this exhibition is an opportunity to see quilting as art in its most extreme and electrifying form, with techniques including printing, painting, weaving, dyeing, felt making and crochet as well as more traditional methods.

Previous entrants have themed their quilts around wide-reaching themes including politics and philosophy, history and humour, memories and the natural world.

The entry chosen for this year's exhibition flyer is "Beach Drift" by Hilary Arber, which features hand dyed fabric, waste from silk cocoons, machine bobbin work and hand embroidery and was inspired by the tides that come and go and tell an ocean's stories amongst washed weed and waste.

Stitched and bound boasts the types of quilts not usually seen in other exhibitions, and will be held at the Zig Zag Gallery in Kalamunda from Friday 14th July to Sunday 30th July with the official opening at 2pm on Saturday 15th July.

There will be floor talks by committee members every Thursday and Friday from 11am-3pm and on weekends from 10am-3pm.

Entry is free and everyone is welcome.
