SJMQT currently has TWO ways you can submit YOUR art. 

FiberShots 4th Annual Community Challenge and Sale

Join the FiberShots 4th Annual Community Challenge and Sale, an important fundraiser for San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles.

Use your preferred fiber art medium to translate your inspiration into a 10” x 10” piece. Your donated work will be sold for $125, with all proceeds dedicated to funding fiber art programs. Now is your chance to support an organization that advocates for fiber art and artists!
