WORLD OF THREADS in OAKVILLE ONTARIO CANADA

This is the first of three blog posts about the world of threads exhibitions.  I was only able to stay a brief time and there was so much to see.   315 artworks by 134 artists from around the world.  For more information and more art by these artists, click on their name to go to website.  I hope that you will look at all three of the posts about the festival.  x
