Meet the Juror/Judge - Paula Golden

Using fiber as a creative means to communicate is intrinsic to my very being. It links me to the continuum of men and women who have stitched their lives in fiber to provide warmth and nourishment for the body and soul. My hands pull weeds, connect community and stitch together thoughts and ideas to create art.
