Dear all,

The special edition of the Pour l’Amour du Fil Show is already behind us and we are already working hard on the next one which will take place from Wednesday 20th to Saturday 23rd April 2022, same time, same place!

We are pleased to announce that Australia will be our guest country of honour and we will be welcoming a host of Australian designers for next year’s show.

The theme of next year’s contest is…

« The World of Down Under »!

The term “Down Under” obviously references Australia, but don’t let that stop you from going further! For example, the bottom of the oceans also are “Down Under”… So you can also think about the coral reef, which will be featured at the show. It’s up to you! There are thousand of things in the world “down there”!

So let your imagination run free! This contest is open to all kind of textile arts (quilting, embroidery, knitting, lace, crochet, etc…). We can’t wait to discover what you are all going to make, but we have no doubt it is going to be fabulous!

The competition rules, as well as the application form, shall soon be updated on the Contest page (HERE) and in Quiltmania magazine.
