The Cutting Edge Group
The Cutting Edge Fiber Arts Group is comprised of fiber and textile artists from the San Luis Obispo County area. Members work with non-traditional and innovative techniques and materials to create art quilts and fiber art that transcend functional craft into the realm of fine art.
