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.

The March 10, 2020 Athens Fibercraft Guild meeting program will be presented by Paula J Vester. Paula will present It isn’t Really Showing Off: Competitions and Exhibits Help You Improve Your Work. Paula will talk about entering exhibits and competitions in general, tips and some of her own ideas that can give us all “a leg up” when we enter, as well as remind you how you can enter the Georgia National Fair, and to come to the Fair during the season to see the creativity of and beauty that is created each year by the people of Georgia.  The meeting will begin in the Fiber Studio and then move to the Community Room downstairs for Paula’s presentation. Please plan to arrive at the Lyndon House just after 12 noon on Tuesday, March 10, 2020 so you will have time to socialize and peruse our library.  The peruse our library part is very important because if you haven’t figured out which book or magazine is going to inspire you to create your Challenge Project which will be shared at our May meeting, you can do it at this meeting. We only have a couple of months until then.

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.
