"It is my pleasure to select the work for Fantastic Fibers 2014. I have been involved with the Yeiser Art Center’s annual fiber shows since 1988, either as a juror or an entrant." said Fallert-Gentry. "Even before I moved to Paducah, Fantastic Fibers was one of the highlights of Quilt Week. It continues to be a world class, international showcase for cutting-edge fiber art, year after year, and I look forward to reviewing the entries in the 2014 show."
