After a long hiatus because of Covid, The World of Threads Festival is booked for Fall of 2023 in Oakville, Ontario, Canada. We are really excited to have our next Call for Submissions in Spring 2023. We look forward to seeing all the new work you've been making since our last Festival in 2018.
The festival is one of the most vibrant fibre arts festivals in the world. We showcase contemporary fibre and textile art in all forms. Our last Festival featured 303 artworks by 65 artists from Canada, Denmark, England, Hungary, Netherlands, Norway, Russia and USA. The Festival was a huge success with attendance over 60,000 who came out to see the show.
The festival is not-for-profit organization with charitable status. It's focused around Queen Elizabeth Park Community and Cultural Centre in Oakville, Ontario, Canada and organized and curated by Dawne Rudman and Gareth Bate.
