Biennial Competition

A Helping Hand by Samantha Gulleckson, 2020 Future in Focus competition

Since 1998 Focus on Fibre Art Association has sponsored a biennial juried competition and exhibition of fibre art including but not limited to: traditional rug hooking, quilting, needlework, textile design, hand knitting, weaving/tapestry, cloth dolls and wearables (clothing/accessories in any technique).

The juried competitions are one of the ways FFAA meets its goal to encourage, foster and develop among the community excellence and appreciation of fibre as an art form. A list of the competition themes since 1998 are listed on the About FFAA page.

Winners of the last three competitions are listed on the Galleries pages, together with the links to the respective catalogues for those competitions.
