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 October 9, 2018 meeting, we are looking forward to having Tommye Scanlin present about tapestry weaving. Tommye is an artist who observes and responds to her surroundings for inspiration. She has been living in the southern Appalachians most of her life. It is her surroundings that are filled with natural forms of woods, streams, and fields from which she is inspired to create her handwoven tapestries.
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. Everyone is invited and is welcome to bring any fiber craft that you have made for show and tell. Text inquiries to 678-772-5138.
