Fiber Bulletin

inside the office

Due to the pandemic of 2020 practically irradicating most exhibitions and gatherings, we are no longer keeping a categorized list of fiber events. We will post announcements in our periodic email sent out to our list of over 1700. This will take the place of our former statewide bulletin of fiber events, exhibitions, opportunities, workshops, news and more. Everyone is able to enter notices, announcements, for sale ads, and other items of interest to the fiber community.

There is a fee of $25 per ad or announcement that is payable on our shop. Once the payment is made a link will be sent to the online form for entering the ad or announcement. Once the form is submitted, the item will be reviewed for clarity and posted as soon as possible. Items will be active until you notify us, or for a period of three months, whichever comes first. We will be posting the ads and announcements in this space below, so any links people have saved over the years will still go to this page when they are looking for notices and news.

I have a lot of wonderful ART BOOKS (mostly fiber-related) I need to dispense with. I have been going through my rather (!) extensive library and have decided to downsize. I am offering the books for $4 each, and $10 for 3 books. They are in very good condition. Quite a variety of media: art quilts, weaving, rug hooking, collage, knitting, fabric design, you name it!
