Fiber Arts Collective's Holiday Fiber Art Sale

Save the Date - SW Women's Fiber Arts Collective's Holiday Fiber Art Sale
A Holiday Fiber Art Sale will be held on Friday and Saturday, November 24 and 25, 2017 from 10 am to 5 pm at the Silver City Woman's Club located at 411 Silver Heights Blvd. The sale is sponsored by the SW Women's Fiber Arts Collective.

“The sale was such a success last year, that we have expanded to two days this year, states board member, Jean Hill. We are very excited to have a longer sale since so many community members look forward to purchasing their holiday gifts from our members.” All of the items for sale are high quality, and handmade by the artisan selling them. Items include weavings, knits, hand painted silks, quilts, quilted items, wall hangings, tapestry weavings, fiber art tools and more!

“What is so wonderful about this sale is finding a unique gift for every budget. We have some quilted items by Lynn Welsch, an award winning quilter, for under ten dollars, and also weavings that sell for hundreds of dollars. There really is something for everyone,” says board member Charmeine Wait.

“A small fiber art exhibit will also be available for viewing and many of the artisans also demonstrate at their booths. There is no admission fee, so this is a great way to learn about fiber art,” states Wait.

The Southwest Women's Fiber Arts Collective (SWFAC) was founded in March, 2005. We are a grassroots, all-volunteer, non-profit 501 c (3) organization with the goal of stimulating and supporting successful cottage industry in the southwest. The organzation meets every two months and has learning programs throughout the year.

The SW Women's Fiber Arts Collective's mission is to celebrate fiber art and realize its economic potential. To accomplish this, we nurture and empower both novice and skilled artists and enrich the community by fostering opportunities to experience, learn and earn.

Please see our website, http://www.fiberartscollective.org for more information about our organization and to learn about becoming a member.
