MAFA 2023 – Back to In-person at Millersville University!
(Note, these are completely un-edited, so you really get the live, in-person feel – Margaret)
With dozens of classes in weaving, spinning, dyeing, felting, basketmaking, and other fiber arts, MAFA 2023 is sure to be a fun and inspiring experience! Shop the vendor marketplace, peruse the fashion, fiber art, and hat exhibits, take part in the towel exchange, enjoy yoga in the afternoon, and make new friends — there’s a lot to look forward to!
The MAFA 2023 conference will be held at Millersville University, Millersville, PA. The campus is located between Harrisburg and Lancaster, in south-central Pennsylvania’s historic Lancaster County.
MAFA is grateful to our Gold Conference Supporter, the Handweavers Guild of America. Find their profile HERE.
We also appreciate the support of our Silver Conference Supporter, Peters Valley School of Craft. Check out their profile HERE.
