I attended the World of Threads Festival for the first time on the weekend. The exhibit is on until Nov. 27, 2016 with venues in Oakville, Ontario and Mississauga Ontario. If you have the opportunity to attend, I highly recommend it.
This was an amazing display of 11,000 hand cast beeswax leaves. A stunning display!
This piece by Tammy Ratcliff of Guelph Ontario is made by printing an etched design on Washi. It’s then woven and hand stitched. It has a very Japanese minimal feel.
The free motion machine stitching on Marilyn Clarke’s piece adds so much detail that it looks as if you could step into the piece.
Completely created with thread and free motion quilting!
Every where there were beautiful, and creative pieces. I’ll have more photos next week.
