I'm so thrilled that three of my experimental books were selected to be included in this year's World of Threads Festival! The exhibition features 97 artists from 10 countries including Australia, Canada, France, Hungary, Germany, Mexico, New Zealand, Japan, UK and USA.

The festival is held the Queen Elizabeth Park Community & Cultural Centre, (QEPCCC) in Oakville, Ontario and was co-curated by Dawne Rudman and Gareth Bate. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, November 1, 2014 from 2-4pm. The exhibition will continue through November.

Works included in the exhibition are: Diary of My Mind, Conductive Apparatus, and In Words Alone.

About the Festival:

The festival is an international showcase of contemporary fibre art. We are a not-for-profit initiative with charitable status. We exhibit innovative fibre based art from around the world and highlight the strength of our local talent. The Festival is run by dedicated volunteers Dawne Rudman (Chair & Festival Curator) and Gareth Bate ((Festival Curator). Exhibitions are carefully planned by various curators.

Beginning in 1994 as a single Oakville exhibition, the festival continues to grow in size and ambition. The exhibitions feature work submitted by hundreds of artists from around the world.

We will continue to be based in Oakville, Ontario. For Festival 2014 we will also have an exhibition in Mississauga. The town of Oakville, Ontario, Canada is located on Lake Ontario 45 minutes west of Toronto and is part of the Greater Toronto Area. Oakville has a vibrant cultural scene for which the World of Threads Festival is a prominent player. The festival draws visitors from across the region and internationally.

I just found you on the web through Pinterest and I'm SOOO sad that I missed you when you were nearby me in Oakville, Ontario. I'm just a few minutes away from there in Hamilton, Ontario. I would have been absolutely thrilled to have met you in person! Hopefully you will be involved next year too and I will have the chance to meet you then. I will definitely still be following you as an artist. Your art is sensational!!!

Like so many other artists, I don't just look to my colleagues for inspiration, I am proud to own the art of my fellows and show it off. I will look for purchasing details on your site. Thank you for sharing. Discovering your work has really made my day!
