Fibre Art Call for Entry!

Monika here... I know the call for entry job is Jackie's but I am jumping in here if you don't mind.  I was just informed of this last night - there is to be a BIG juried fibre art competition in Edmonton, 2014.  This is being put on by the Focus on Fibre Arts Association.  The categories include EVERYTHING fibre - dolls, quilts, weaving, tapestry, knitting, embroidery, wearables, hooked rugs.  It's for all of us!! ; )  There's just one catch - items must fit the theme.  The theme (omg I can't contain my excitement!!) is PRAIRIES.  PRAIRIES!!  : )))

You can view the PDF Brochure Here.

If that doesn't work, you can google Focus On Fibre Art Association - Juried Prairie Show for all the details.  I believe the entry deadlines are a year from now, so get to work!  : ) 

I for one will be heading to Edmonton just to stand in that room and soak up all the beautiful things.  Oh me, oh my.


  1. Wow...they have a category for cloth dolls!!! There aren't too many opportunities for cloth doll makers in Canada to enter shows or competitions as far as I know so that is awesome:)

  2. The FFAA is a delightful group of artists. I've belonged since 2010 and had pieces in their 2010 and 2012 Biennial Exhibit. The quality of the work continues to grow and the artistic inspiration is wonderful. Do join in!

  3. VERY interesting. Thanks for posting this.

  4. I smartened up and cleaned up the CFE board and added 2 more!

  5. A show close to home, yay! Thank you for the heads up, I'll definitely be submitting something
