“Stitched Books: Eight Artists Collaborate”
Tricia Coulson is a fiber artist who lives in LeClaire. When she attended a workshop at the Split Rock Arts Program in Minneapolis two years ago, she didn’t want to lose touch with her fellow artists and, to be honest, she wanted to get stuff in the mail, so she suggested that she and her classmates collaborate on making eight stitched books. The results are on display in the library on 2nd floor. Made mostly of fabric and stitching, you’ll find beads, buttons, sticks, and stamps in these books, too, and even a few words here and there.
