New to the 2019 conference will be an exhibit featuring artistic works with the theme “Threads of Communication.”

Fiber artists may express an event, story, message, conversation through the use of fibers and are not restricted to a literal interpretation. An abstract approach may be leveraged.

The Fiber Arts Exhibit will be located within the Marketplace and on view for the duration of the 2019 MAFA Conference.
