Austin Fiber Artists

South Austin Meetings

We start our meetings with a show and tell segment. Members show current works that are in progress or have been completed. Many members use this time as an opportunity to get feedback about works in progress or ask for possible solutions when they encounter a technical difficulty that they want to overcome. Then we have a short business meeting. The current group president leads the meeting and current board members give brief monthly reports as needed. Our program and workshop chairs update the group on future events or workshops in the planning stages. This part of the meeting typically lasts no longer than 30 minutes. Then the monthly program begins. The program can be on a variety of topics of interest to fiber artists. One program involved a talk with fiber artists was an expert on lace making, another one was from an artist who was an expert on book binding and making. Our program chair is always open to suggestion for future topics that might be of interest to the group.
