Sacramento Center for the Textile Arts
The Sacramento Center for the Textile Arts celebrates the link between the creative individual and the artwork of textiles. We offer a wide range of programs for practicing artists, collectors, and all who appreciate fiber arts. SCTA is a non-profit corporation, founded in 1979.
What we do
SCTA sponsors an array of educational programs throughout the year, including
- Lectures by nationally recognized guest speakers on such topics as surface design, ethnic textiles, artistic clothing, quilting, weaving, jewelry, and marketplaces.
- Workshops on techniques related to textile arts, including dyeing and printing, beading, quilting, embroidery, felting, mixed media, and papermaking/bookbinding.
- Bus trips to special events and places related to the textile arts.
