This program focuses on inspiring participants to embrace new challenges in their work and provides a supportive community in which to create.

We felt it!

We had a great meeting on Monday. Many of our felting members brought their artwork to show us. Many of them also did demonstrations, so we had a chance to see how it’s done and play a little. There are so many different approaches to felting!More Information

January question

On January 14, 2017 the Fiberarts Guild gathered for its annual Potluck Fundraiser, arguably our most fun event of the year. We ate, chatted, laughed, and hugged. As in years before, the Chinese auction held a myriad of art supplies, yarn, fabric, and many other assorted goodies gleaned from each other’s studios (one person’s trash is another one’s treasure). In the silent auction, we bid on (and sometimes vied hotly for) beautiful items handmade mostly by Guild members.

FI16 inspection highlights… and register NOW for the Forum!

SCC ArendtOpening weekend for Fiberart International 2016 is steaming toward us like a freight train — packed with art, anticipation, and festivities!  Lots of last minute preparations behind the scenes before the gala opening on May 6, just weeks away! A favorite part of every FI is inspection week-end when one of our jurors returns to examine each piece live for the first time.

Lucky Guild volunteers make up the white gloved crew who carry out this essential operation. We open each crate with special care, document the condition and note how each piece was packed. After inspection the work is re-packed for storage until installation.  Not only is this an opportunity to check out the detail and incredible craftsmanship of your favorite artworks but also to engage with the juror about all things fiberart. Even if you’ve seen the images a dozen times, as some volunteers have — the scale, texture, and power of each piece is a joy to experience firsthand.More Information
