Meet Your Representative Allison Wilbur

As a contemporary fiber artist I use fabric as a story telling medium. My pieces often tell the stories of women around the world and key issues that affect their lives. At times, I combine textiles from other cultures with American traditional piecing patterns to create a collaborative work that celebrates the international language of fiber shared by women in so many communities. In more traditional pieces, the interplay of color and form combine to move the eye around the quilt. 

I lecture to quilt guilds about textiles from around the world, and longarm quilt tops for customers and teach quilting techniques at Knit One Quilt Too in Barrington, RI. My husband, Dick Wilbur, and I run the social enterprise, "Quilt for Change,” which curates themed challenge art quilt exhibits. The exhibits have been displayed at the United Nations in Switzerland and New York, have traveled with major quilt shows in the U.S., and have been exhibited at the New England Quilt Museum in Lowell, MA.
