The Mississippi Valley Textile Museum wants to Exhibit Your Textile Crafts!
Any Age, Any Ability Welcome

During the pandemic, an unprecedented amount of crafting has occurred. From the first lockdown in March 2020, uncertainty, anxiety, and a whole lot more time at home has spurred us on to crafting as a soothing balm for our minds.

We want to see the textile projects that you completed in 2020 or are working on in 2021. Though it's been a while since we've seen you, we know that you've been making loads of things at home. We have recently launched a virtual gallery on our website, and we'd like to show your textile work. Whether you are a keen textile newbie, picking up a long-forgotten project, or making crafts with the kids โ€“ no matter! Any project, big or small, with a textile or fibre element to it is great.

Submit your work to our Virtual Gallery
Please send us a maximum of 3 of your best pictures of your textile craft project (we are a textile museum, after all!), with a short description of the work. Pictures with your name and description will be posted on our NEW virtual exhibit page (mvtm.ca/virtual-exhibits/). We will do our best to post all work submitted, however submissions will be selected for clarity and relevance.

Description - Answer the following:

  • Maker's name and location (Ex. Jane Smith, Almonte ON)
  • Type of textile project (Ex. Finger knitted scarf) ยท What have you (or the maker) enjoyed about making it?
  • How has crafting helped you during this time? (2 -3 sentences only please)
  • Pictures: Take pictures as close as possible to the object, using daylight for clearest detail and best colour

Submit questions and files to Melanie Girdwood-Brunton at m.girdwood@mvtm.ca
Submission deadline: September 1, 2021

Fibre Art Now โ€“ Yarn/Rope/String - Deadline: September 24, 2021
Excellence In Quilts - Deadline: September 24, 2021
Excellence In Fibers VII (all fiber-related mediums) - Deadline: October 29.
For all the details: https://fiberartnow.net/calls/
