Focus on Fibre Art Association is CELEBRATING!
Seventeen years have passed since the group was officially formed. Many thanks to the group of dedicated artists on the planning committie in 1997/98. They had the foresight to see that fibre artists would need a venue to show their art after the Edmonton Exhibition cancelled the Arts and Craft division of our annual fair.
We have entered a new wave of non profit groups that volunteer for fundraising under the auspices of the Alberta Gaming Commision. These funds enable Focus On Fibre Association to fufill the next dream. This dream is to provide excellent teaching in the form of workshops and lecture series.
The biennial juried show ‘My Heritage’, winds its way through the upcoming workshops. We invite all artists, after attending our workshop, lectures and trunk shows to enter their pieces into our show. When we share our ideas we continue to grow and excel in our art.
The Focus on Fibre Art Association (FFAA) is a society whose aim is “to encourage, foster and develop among the citizens of the community excellence and appreciation of fibre as an art form”. To accomplish this we sponsor biennial juried competitions and shows of fibre art encompassing traditional rug hooking, quilting, needlework, textile design, hand knitting, weaving/tapestry, cloth dolls and wearables (clothing/accessories in any technique).
