About Our Meetings

COVID-19 UPDATE:

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are hosting all meetings virtually for the remainder of 2020. Meetings will be held on Zoom on the date of the North Austin Meeting (second Tuesday of each month). Meeting links will be sent in email to members. If you are not yet a member but would like to visit, please send an email to president@austinfiberartists.org

Show & Tell continues, but please send photos of your work (or relevant material for a “tell”) to the President at least the day before the meeting.

Real-Life Meeting Information (for future reference)

We meet the third Wednesday of each month at Holy Cross Lutheran Church in South Austin.

The Northern Satellite meeting is held on the second Tuesday of the month in Round Rock.  AFA members are welcome to attend either or both meeting(s). Visitors are welcome.

 After attending two meetings visitors will be asked to become members.

South Austin Meeting

Time & Location

Every 3rd Wednesday of the month at the Holy Cross Lutheran Church fellowship hall at 4622 S Lamar Blvd, Austin, TX 78745. Except December, when we’re partying in Round Rock on the 2nd Tuesday! Show & Tell begins at 6:45 pm, followed by the business meeting at 7:00 pm with a program following.

Directions: We’re on the south Lamar frontage road, south of West Gate but before Brodie. It’s directly across from the 290 on-ramp and across the highway from the Tony Berger center. Be careful or you’ll miss the entrance! (The second one is OK, too, but then you’ll walk back, past the church, to the fellowship hall.) If you miss them both, just U-turn at Brodie, go back to West Gate and U-turn again, and take another pass…

Meeting Format

We start with a show and tell segment, so bring your works that are in progress or have just been completed and let us get to know you. Many members use this as an opportunity to get feedback and solutions for technical difficulties. Then comes a short business meeting where you’ll hear about future exhibitions, events, or workshops. Then on to the evening’s program, which can be a presentation from a fiber artist, a hands-on activity, or even a party! Our program chair is always open to suggestion for future topics that might be of interest to the group.

Round Rock Meeting

Time & Location

Every second Tuesday of the month in the Art Room of the Baca Center at 301 W Bagdad Ave, Round Rock. (Except for July, when we party at the south meeting on the 3rd Wednesday)  There is parking under the building toward the back. There is an elevator to the ground floor. There is also parking on Bagdad, and the entrance is on the EAST side of Baca.  Note: the McConico building is located EAST of Baca, to help give a sense of direction.
