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.
Another meeting is being planned by the newly forming Eastside Fiber Artists, located around Tyler Texas. There was great excitement from the last meeting as the group discussed holding the first exhibit of fiber work in 2013.
The next fiber art meeting will be held on July 7, 2012. The meet will be held again at the home of Kathy Wood on South Broadway. The meeting will start at 10 a.m.
With this meeting the group will be discussing proposed bylaws. Also, bring ideas and supplies for the 6 X 6 project benefiting the Mainstream Gallery .
Bring a salad for your pot luck lunch.
