Call for art, artists issued for 17th-annual Sequim fiber festival

SEQUIM — Organizers of the 17th annual North Olympic Fiber Arts Festival fiber arts exhibition — “Interlaced Lore – Adventure, Fellowship & Perseverance” — are seeking creative suppliers of all fiber arts media for the exhibit to be showcased at Sequim Museum & Arts Oct. 1-Nov. 26.

“Interlaced Lore” is a juried fiber arts exhibition “embracing fantastical and very true stories of endurance and friendship through heroic efforts, tests and trials, collaborations, and leading by example,” said Renne Emiko Brock, the North Olympic Fiber Arts Festival director.

“Gather fabric stashes, skeins of yarn, courageous companions and wise mentors to prepare for this everlasting journey of fiber art. What legends of dedication, commitment to bound connections, intertwined myths and persistence weave stories within your art?”

Seasoned or newer creations are welcome, she said.

Deadline for submittals is Thursday, Sept. 15.

The full prospectus and entry form are at

Artists can enter a maximum of two art entries per artist; there is a $10 entry fee per artist. All formats of fiber art will be considered, including wall-hung, free-standing or pedestal-mounted.

Entries must be original and must not be copied, derivatives or based on other copyrighted or published work. All skill levels are welcome.

The festival includes the exhibition opening reception from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 2, and on the First Friday Art Walk Sequim from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 7, with fiber arts demonstrations. Each of these events are at Sequim Museum & Arts, 544 N. Sequim Ave.

Other key festival dates include the First Friday Art Walk Sequim on Nov. 4, and the Small Business Saturday Fiber Arts Market on Nov. 26.

Other fiber arts events and exhibitions happen throughout the months of September, October and November on the Olympic Peninsula that are partnerships with the North Olympic Fiber Arts Festival.
