The VFAG fund raising journal is ready!


‘A Fiber Art Journey’ will be a constant companion.  Each of its one hundred pages has ‘Inspiration, Tips, Tricks and Sage Advice’ to make it a perfect source book as well as a gift for all your fiber friends.  You’ll find the spiral bound journal the perfect place to write notes for projects and workshops, store swatches, yarn samples and all those ‘idea’ clipping from magazines.  Available in 10 colors @ $15.00 each.

Bring your checkbook or cash!

Journals will be available at meetings until all are sold.​

​Welcome

​​​​​We are an active group of fiber art enthusiasts in Southern Arizona (Green Valley/Sahuarita).    While many of our members weave, spin, and/or knit,  we also bead, braid, felt, embellish, crochet, dye, and engage in just about any other fiber art out there. We have monthly programs from September to May, workshops on a variety of topics, and study groups in interest areas that meet monthly. 

 

MEETING PLACE AND TIME

We generally meet at 10:00 am on the first Tuesday of each month September to May at Good Shepherd United Church of Christ, 17750 S. La Canada Dr, Sahuarita

MEMBERSHIP

We extend an invitation to anyone interested in the fiber arts to join us.  In addition to monthly programs/meetings, we have a large number of study groups, workshops, and community outreach activities.
