The Fashion History Museum now has a permanent space in the Southworks Mall in Cambridge. It was founded in 2004 to create exhibitions that travel throughout Canada and abroad. The collection consists of over 8,000 garments and accessories dating from the 1660s to the present. Alongside historical dress, the museum is building a contemporary Canadian designer collection as well as a comprehensive library and archives of fashion related publications and documents.

Threadworks mandate is to mount, every three years (2010, 2013, 2016), a juried show of exceptional creative needlework stitched by artists from across Canada. The show opens at the WCM&A and then travels to a number of museums and galleries across Ontario during the next two years. This year’s deadline to enter your artwork is March 1st.
