Fiber Art Memberships

If you’re a member of the Austin Fiber Artists or the Fiber Artists of San Antonio, it’s time to renew your membership!  Both of these groups are part of the Texas State wide group of Federation of Fiber Artists.

Remember if you’re a member of one of the Federation groups, you’re eligible to participate in the other group’s activities.   In the fall, the Fiber Artists of San Antonio will be having their annual fall show.  Members in the Houston Area Fiber Artists or the Austin Fiber Artists are can submit their entries without having to join a second group, any jury fees or other entrance fees would still have to be paid however!

If you travel to San Antonio or Austin or Houston, be sure and check out the website and attend the monthly meetings if you’re in the area.  It’s a great way to meet new Fiber Artists throughout the state of Texas.  You might also have an opportunity to listen to a great Fiber Art speaker or see a hands-on demo.
