Gathering Threads festival

5 May 2023 @ 6:00 PM 7 May 2023 @ 3:00 PM MDT

Gathering Threads is Edmonton’s Premier Yarn & Fibre Arts Festival. Since 2016, the festival formerly known as the Edmonton Fibre Frolic has helped fibre arts enthusiasts find connection. Textile artists from across Canada and the world are drawn to Edmonton each May for this world-class event, which includes workshops in macrame, knitting, embroidery, beading, fashion sustainability, knitwear styling, wool production, spinning, felting, weaving, and so much more. Each event is its own experience, where you’ll meet up with familiar faces, see finished projects that were works-in-progress at the last event, and meet new friends in the Gathering Threads Social Lounge. Whether you’re a maker, creator, indie dyer, designer or just looking to learn a fun and rewarding hobby, we’ve got a place for you in our circle!
