Uncommon Threads 2018 - Wearable Art Runway Experience




Artists Needed for one day event:

October 21, 2018, at Q-Center, St.Charles, IL


Participation is open to all one-of-a-kind wearable art in any fiber-related media.  Work represented must be an original concept and executed by the artist.  All items must be for sale.

Jurors will select work based on originality and runway suitability.  When designing garments, please give some thought as to how they will look on the runway. Notifications will be sent via email by mid-June.

Runway Artists may submit 3-5 women’s and/or men’s garments.  Children’s garments will not be accepted.  Only garments in the media selected by the jurors will be accepted for the runway; e.g., don’t send handwovens for the runway if your application images were of knitwear.  The Artists Committee reserves the right to make the final selection of the garments to be included on the runway.

Runway artists may apply for an Artist Managed Booth.  Accepted Runway Artists without an Artist Managed Booth may submit up to 10 additional garments and up to 30 accessory items for sale in the Fine Line Managed Booth.


There are two options for participating in the Boutique:

  • Fine Line Managed Booth

You may submit up to 30 items for sale in the Fine Line Managed Booth which will be staffed by Fine Line volunteers.  Work exhibited must be a functional accessory of original concept and executed by the artist.  No copies are eligible.  We define accessories as items that enhance a wardrobe such as scarves, shawls, jewelry, purses, hats, etc.  Items for sale in the Fine Line Managed Booth must be priced below $250.  The Boutique Committee will make final selections of work to be used in the show.


  • Artist Managed Booth

A limited number of 10’x10’ booths are available.  Space will be allocated by the Boutique Committee with all decisions final.  There is no limit to the number or price of items for sale. Artist Managed Booth Artists must staff their own booths and be responsible for their own inventories.
