‘Happy accidents’ sought for 16th North Olympic Fiber Arts Festival

SEQUIM — Local artists look to bring the best of their “happy accidents” to an exhibition during the 16th iteration of the North Olympic Fiber Arts Festival Exhibition this fall.

“Bumblebunching ­— Warped, Twisted & Imperfect,” a juried fiber arts exhibition and a component of the Fiber Arts Festival, goes on display Oct. 1-3 at Sequim Museum & Arts, 544 N. Sequim Ave.

Entry deadline is Sept. 7. To enter, download an entry form and full prospectus at fiberartsfestival.org.

Bumblebunching, exhibit organizers say, are the jumbled loops created by the bobbin when stitching has improper tension while machine sewing. This is open to all fiber arts media, and seasoned or newer creations are welcome.

Many 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.

Join other artists for this interactive fiber arts event connecting to the community with activities like a museum exhibition, workshops, educational demonstrations of fiber processes, hands-on projects with children and adults, Fiber Arts Market of local artists work and fiber supplies, lecture and information about local fiber activities, groups, businesses and instructional resources.

North Olympic Fiber Arts Festival is produced by Renne Emiko Brock/unique as you and co-sponsored by the local spinning and weaving guild, North Olympic Shuttle & Spindle Guild and several partners on the Olympic Peninsula, including the Sequim Museum & Arts.
