Explore Fiber is a collaborative website showcasing and exploring fiber as a fine art material.
The World of Threads Festival website is a wonderful fiber resource I stumbled onto! The festival is an international showcase of contemporary fiber and textile art. They are a not-for-profit initiative with charitable status and exhibit innovative fiber and textile art from around the world and highlight the strength of the local talent. Based in Oakville, Ontario, Canada, the Festivals go back to 1998, when they held their first one. You can get updates and details for the next festival in 2016 here.
