About Fiber Forum
Fiber Forum was organized in 1992 in order to advance embroidery as an art form through the exhibition of original works of exceptional merit. To this end, the group endeavors to have a biennial exhibit in art centers, galleries, or museums throughout the country. It also exhibits annually at the National Seminar in the Education Exhibit.
