Lovely Fibre Works

So many beautiful works at the World of Threads Festival. Here are a few snap shots of work that I was able to see. I was at the opening for a few hours but still did not manage to see everything there. Such a diverse large group of fibre art works from all over the world. (I believe there are over 300 works from 134 artists!) You should definitely go. It will be up until the 27th of November and you can find all the details you need here.
