The Pacific Northwest Quilt & Fiber Arts Museum has issued a Call for Entries for the 2018 Quilt & Fiber Arts Festival. This juried and judged (optional) exhibit is open to all national and international quilters and fiber artists. The Call for Entries is open now and closes on July 28, 2018. Festival Exhibit dates are October 12-14, 2018.
There are several changes to the Festival this year, including a new location, the Edward D. Hansen Conference Center in Everett, WA. This larger, more accessible facility with greater amenities will allow us to offer all classes and exhibits in one venue. Many nearby lodging and restaurant options makes this a great location to enjoy the three-day event.
Entry guidelines and categories have been updated to represent the changes observed in the quilting and fiber arts community. The new categories are simple and easy to follow, with a much broader range of Fiber Art categories. The Festival is also using a new online submission process, ArtCall.org. This system manages the process better and offers entrants clear instructions on how to submit entries.
Finally, although all entries will be juried into the exhibit, the ability to ‘opt out’ of judging will hopefully encourage many more artists to participate! Enter your traditional quilts, your pictorial or modern quilts, dolls, hand-knit or hand woven items, wearable art, needlework, and more! Be a part of this truly unique Festival in the Pacific Northwest. Visit www.qfamuseum.org for details and to enter.
