Calling all Canadian Fibre Artists !!

Threadworks is a Tri-annual, Juried, Traveling Exhibit of Exceptional Creative Needlework, stitched by artists from across Canada.

The theme for 2016 is .... ' FLASHBACK '

What does that word bring to your imagination ? 
Just how far does it take you back ? Yesterday ? Last  year ? Yesteryear ?
Your wedding/your mother's/grandmother's or maybe your great grandmother's ? 
How about your youth ? 
Your ancestor's or your ancient history ?
Anything other than this minute or tomorrow qualifies !!!
A few more suggestions; fashion, art deco, architecture, the environment/nature/fossils, summer camp, holidays, war, hippies, home, death. life/birth ... you name it ! 
There is something in your past that has been waiting to be stitched and recorded !

There are some new changes to this wonderful fibre art exhibit that has been in existence since 1987.

We now have  a website ! 

AND ... the jurying process will be on-line ! ...  in 2 phases; 
- a preliminary selection online 
- and a final jurying, on site, by our 3 jurors; 
Jane Dams, Dick Marvin and Lorraine Roy
Read about our jurors on the website.

Go to the website now to view/download your copy of the Call For Entry and for all the other pertinent information that you will need to know. 
As well, you can view a few past shows.


  1. How I wish we had opportunities like this here in the UK ... If we do, I don't know about them ... Perhaps I must search!

  2. It would be fabulous to include international artists ! Hope you find something similar ;)
