Fiber Forum

Fiber Forum was organized in 1992 in order to advance embroidery as an art form through the exhibition of original works of exceptional merit. To this end, the group endeavors to have a biennial exhibit in art centers, galleries, or museums throughout the country. It also exhibits annually at the National Seminar in the Education Exhibit.

New Members are juried in each year by accredited judges on the basis of both aesthetic achievement and technical skill. Members are juried through digital photos of original, non-teaching pieces. To remain a member of Fiber Forum requires re-jurying at least every three years with digital photo submissions of members’ new work. This procedure encourages each person to set a learning challenge and helps to attain personal goals. Upon acceptance, the membership fee is $25.00 annually.

EGA members interested in keeping abreast of the activities of Fiber Forum may become a member of Fiber Forum Friends. The Fiber Forum Friends as well as members receive dates for Fiber Forum jurying, exhibits, and other news.

2018 Fiber Forum Retreat

The Nature of Pattern
Jean Draper

fiberforum2018Fiber Forum will have their retreat in Victoria British Columbia with Jean Draper. The workshop, “The Nature of Pattern”, will explore different aspects of natural pattern with a view of developing ideas for our own stitched textiles.

A variety of methods, techniques and materials will be used to enable everyone to make an exciting range of designs and stitched samples that are entirely individual in character.
