“The World of Threads Festival is a premier international showcase for contemporary textile and fiber art. We are a nonprofit initiative with charitable status, run by a few dedicated volunteers. We believe that some of the most interesting and significant artwork currently being made is in the field of fiber art. Through our initiatives we have discovered some remarkable artists and brought them to the attention of Canadian and international audiences.”
