For the first time since its inception in 2012, the Fibre Content juried exhibition has been condensed into a collection of 38
pieces, featuring artwork garnering high viewers' choice responses and providing a cross-section of the quality and variety of
the full show. The Fibre Content travelling exhibit will be on display at the Simcoe County Museum from September 19 until
November 11, 2017.  

These beautiful and thought provoking pieces were created by artists from Studio Art Quilts Associates (SAQA), Grand Guild of 
Fibre Artists, Group of Eight Fibre Artists, Oakville Fibre Artists, Connections Fibre Artists, Burlington Fibre Arts Guild, and 
Burlington Handweavers & Spinners Guild.  The main exhibition showcased 125 fibre art quilts and mixed media works by 80 
artists from across Ontario in September 2016 at the Art Gallery of Burlington.  A full colour catalogue of all 125 main show 
works is available. 

A special part of Fibre Content is an Interactive Exhibit. Artists made numerous samples of their techniques and style, which 
you can handle and examine to understand how the work is done — a true learning experience!

Fibrations is a not-for-profit organization originally founded to promote the work of fibre artists and quilt makers through both
independent exhibitions and projects, and in connection with other artistic events such as musical performances. The primary
focus of Fibrations over the last several years has become Fibre Content; a juried show of quilts and fibre art pieces by 
Canadian artists.
