Visit to the World of Threads Festival in Toronto

I was so overwhelmed with beauty and creativity during my trip to Toronto for the World of Threads Festival.

A bus tour included a visit to three venues with an incredible variety of fibre art, sculpture and fibre-inspired work.
I wanted to bring my daughter home a souvenir of Toronto, but didn’t want a made-in-China quick buy. On the train ride home I decided to make her a gift inspired by what I saw in the Festival. I had a vintage checkered Kleenex in my purse and formed it into a tiny dress, binding it with a thread from my scarf. I was able to create a gift box with a subscription card from my Canadian Art magazine. Myriam loved her gift and ended up having a great weekend with her dad and her friends while I got my Art-fix!
