Today my daughter and I went to the World of Thread exhibit in Oakville, Ontario with Wulf and his partner and it was INCREDIBLE! There was such an abundance of work on display, really beautiful pieces of art. I took photos of a few things that were too good not to share. Here is a wonderful coat made of felted merino over sheer silk with eco-printed plants and lovely kantha stitching. I wanted to put this on and wear it home.




Amazing detail.


The artist is Vinitha Sara John

I love natural dying. The colors are beautiful and haunting. Like little ghost leaves.

I could def see you shrugging this on and sauntering around.

What was your daughters favorite?

I didn't get a photo but later she said it was a hoop with a cardinal, fully 3-D. Very cool.

I was hoping to see the cardinal, but their site isn't updated and I couldn't find it on Insta either. Boo.

So much talent there.

I think it may have been part of the community centre's regular exhibit and not specific to the show. There was so much art there and we kept discovering more and more hallways filled with it. There was a room of glass towers with old French gowns, purses, perfume vials, etc. An historical display that was certainly a stand-alone. What a place! There is some sort of weaving exhibit coming up soon too, I will have to keep in touch and visit often.
