Really short deadline on this call for entries - Factory-Art New York is accepting entries until December 15, 2013 for the 2014 show. I was not familiar with this organization - for more information about Factory-Art, check out their website.
Even if you miss the deadline to submit, you'll probably want to review prior accepted submissions to see if this is something you may want to explore in 2014 for the 2015 shows.
I've written a few articles about 3D printing's usefulness in creating arts and crafts.While working on my 2014 arts and crafts trends article, which mentions 3d printing, I happened to run across this article about 3D printed fabric at a recent Victoria's Secret show.
The images show an interesting application of the 3D technology. The article also mentions a computational fashion workshop at Pratt this summer that had students working digitally and with 3D printing to create dresses.
The Society of North American Goldsmiths (SNAG) has issued a call for entries for the 2014 Metalsmith Juried Exhibition in Print for works that are about animals, of animals, and even for animals! The deadline to apply is January 31,2014.

Ran across this intro to an article at the Boston Globe: Textile Dressing - Wear Your Art on Your Sleeve. While you have to be a subscriber to the Globe to read the whole article, there is plenty of good info for free. The article also references a Wearable-Arts party, which is also a great concept for an arts and crafts business with a retail or popup presence.
