We are delighted to announce the Fiber Art Exhibit has been sponsored by
Triangle Weavers Guild.
As we continued to face uncertain times, the 2021 Conference planned a Virtual Fiber Art Exhibit with the theme “Escape”.
The year 2020 was challenging for many of us. The ongoing pandemic, school closures, lost jobs, social isolation, raging wildfires and hotly contested elections were stress and anxiety inducing. So we asked entrants to show us expressions in fiber of where they went or what they did to escape difficult times. Entries were not restricted to a literal interpretation of the theme but could be more abstract in their approach.
A brief, introductory video of the Fiber Art submissions will be presented on the first day of the MAFA conference. An eBook and gallery of all Fiber Art submissions will be available for viewing here during and after the conference.
Congratulations to our Fiber Art Exhibit winners!
