All Stitched Up is an international juried book arts exhibition currently at Collins Library at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington. Curators Catherine Alice Michaelis, Jane Carlin, and Diana Weymar describe the theme as "to stitch is to join together, to mend, or fasten as with stitches--to sew. To stitch is to bring together fabric, paper, wounds of the body, or cultural divides. Stitching can be an act of healing, hope, practicality, creativity, and revolution. All Stitched Up recognizes and celebrates the work of book artists' where stitching has become an integral part of the visual design." This exhibit will run until December 11, 2019.
