I have seen an incredible amount of excellent textile art recently. I am just sorry that time and space only allow for ten artists from the group exhibitions I viewed in Cambridge, Oakville and Mississauga. The World of Threads festival is really very stimulating and shouldn't be missed. I wasn't able to see everything so allow yourself enough time if you are planning to go.
