May 16, Austin Fiber Artists Meeting

AFA invites all WSSA members to discuss our Fall Runway

The May program of Austin Fiber Artists will be all about the WSSA and AFA style show and sale! Members of  Weavers and Spinners Society of Austin will be coming to speak as part of the committee with AFA to share their thoughts and ideas on the show that will be taking place on September 29th at the Balcones Country Club in Austin.

The specifications and inspirations for the entries will be discussed and explored thoroughly during this program. We are thoroughly encouraging all of our members and potential members to accurately represent our group by entering a piece. During this time we will be seeing clips of a video from AFA’s  sister organization, the Fiber Artists of San Antonio, chronicling their experience over the years with their highly successful style show. Afterwards, there will be a conversation about the direction envisioned for our show, including potential collaborations and design/media categories.

The sale is not exclusively limited to garments and will include accessories such as hats, bags, purses, scarves etc., so invite anyone that might be interested in being involved in this opportunity. The meeting will be significant for everyone interested in participating, and ought to be engaging evening to confer on the potential of our 1st annual style show and sale.

AFA meets the third Wednesday of each month at Holy Cross Lutheran Church, 4622 South Lamar. Show & Tell begins at 6:45 pm, followed by the business meeting at 7:00 pm with a program following.  Visitors are welcome.
