A Celebration of Fibers and Fabric

In 2022, OCAC is sponsoring “A Celebration of Fibers and Fabric!” The year will be filled with exhibits, events, classes, and demonstrations that will educate and wow all who participate!

But it's never too early to learn about fibers and fabrics!


On March 29th, 2021, Joyce Kowba, an OCAC board member, reviewed and shared highlights from the book, "The Golden Thread: How Fabric Changed History" by Kassia St. Clair in Wood Library's Books Sandwiched In Program. (Read a brief summary of the book on Goodreads and local library catalog, OWWL.)

Judi Cermak, OCAC president, highly recommends the book as an enlightening read that will increase your knowledge and understanding of fibers and fabrics and their place in human history.

The most frequent critique of the book in the Amazon reviews is that there are no illustrations. So... we have created a companion resource of pictures (with corresponding page numbers) for readers to refer to as they are reading the book. We hope that this will add to your reading pleasure!
