Athens Fibercraft Guild welcomes all amateur and professional fiber artists including knitters, crocheters, weavers, spinners, fabric designers, basket makers, quilters and embroiderers who share their talents. Meetings are held on the second Tuesdays of the months September through June at 12:30 pm at the Lyndon House Arts Center, 211 Hoyt St., Athens, GA 30601 and feature programs about the fiber arts. Everyone is invited and is welcome to bring any fiber craft that you have made for show and tell. There will be an opportunity to join the guild if interested.
For the January 8, 2019 meeting, we will gather in the Fabric Studio on the 2nd-floor of the Lyndon House Arts Center. Our program will be a curated tour given by the artist, René Shoemaker, of the “Call & Response” Exhibit on the 2nd-floor gallery. In this exhibit by René Shoemaker and Judy Bales, a collaborative effort in silk, fiber, and wearable art, René and Judy explore a long-term inspirational friendship.
Bringing together professional and amateur artists alike, the Athens Fibercraft Guild is home to a network of knitters, weavers, spinners, fabric designers, quilters and other fiber artists. Text inquiries to 678-772-5138.
