Organizers of the 18th-annual North Olympic Fiber Arts Festival fiber arts exhibition are seeking submittals for “Spinning Sewn Stories – Promulgate, Piece, & Ply,” the artistic showcase set for Oct. 6-Nov. 25 at Sequim Museum & Arts.

The deadline for submittals is Sept. 16. A full prospectus and entry form are at FiberArtsFestival.org.

“Spinning Sewn Stories” is a juried fiber arts exhibition. Seasoned or newer creations are welcome, and the exhibition is open to all fiber arts media.

Enter a maximum of two art entries per artist; there is a $15 entry fee per artist. All formats of fiber art will be considered, including wall-hung, free-standing or pedestal mounted.

Entries must be original and must not be copied, derivatives or based on other copyrighted or published work. All skill levels are welcome.

The North Olympic Fiber Arts Festival is “an opportunity to experience positive inclusion, creative expression, and the economic enterprise of art,” organizers note. Activities, most of which are free to the public, include a museum exhibition, workshops, and educational demonstrations of fiber processes, hands-on projects (for children and adults), a market of local artists’ work and fiber supplies, and information about local fiber activities, groups, businesses and instructional resources.

The festival includes fiber arts demonstrations during the First Friday Art Walk from 5-8 p.m. on Oct. 6, and a fiber arts market (11 a.m.-4 p.m.) and exhibition opening reception (11 a.m.-1 p.m.) on Saturday, Oct. 7. Additionally, check out fiber artistry during the First Friday Art Walk on Nov. 3 and Small Business Saturday Fiber Arts Market on Nov. 25.
