2023 Grand National - DELIGHTS

We are pleased to announce our second touring exhibition of Canadian Fibre Art. After this past year of cancelled trips, isolation and basically life on hold, we are ready for some fun.

Exhibition Statement


Every one of us has pleasures in our lives. What delights you? What makes you happy, joyous and cheerful? What lifts your heart? We asked the fibre artists of Canada to share their ‘Delights’ with us.


This juried exhibition will consist of the works of 35-40 Canadian professional fibre artists from across Canada, each expressing a particular delight that has great meaning to them, resulting in a diverse range of materials, techniques, ideas, concepts, and cheerful thoughts to get us all back on the path to living, having fun and enjoying the pleasures of life once again.

At this time, we would like to thank Janome Canada Ltd. a supporter of the Grand National since its inception in 2003, Wonderful Specialty Threads, Kitchener-Waterloo Community Foundation Grand National Legacy Fund and the Fibre Art Network who all have stepped forward to see that the Grand National continues by sponsoring Delights at the Platinum or Gold levels.
