2020 Fiber Arts Challenge

The Fiber Arts Challenge at the 2019 Festival was a success. So we are going to issue a new challenge for the 2020 Michigan Fiber Festival. The 2020 challenge theme is "reflections."


This photo is our starting point for the 2020 challenge. But Reflections can be interpreted in many ways. It can be something that has inspired you this past year to look more deeply. It can be using a fiber technique that uses the idea of a mirror or reversed image. Or it could be some other way that your fiber creativity has reflected in your life.

All fiber techniques are welcome. We do encourage the use of nature fibers, both plant and animal. So please make your entry is made of at least 90 percent natural fiber.

Since the number of entries is not likely to need the items to be divided by technique, we make the process as simple as possible.

Rules & Information
