Promoting Fiber Art in New Mexico
The Albuquerque Fiber Arts Council, Inc., a not-for-profit organization operating with the support of
co-sponsoring fiber arts guilds, acts through educational programs, funding and public exhibits, to
ensure the current and future viability of fiber arts for our guilds, fiber artists, and the larger
The Council accomplishes this primarily through the two major components of the Council: the
Fiber Arts Fiesta Committee and the Fiber Arts Education Committee.
The Co-sponsoring Guilds elect or appoint
representatives to participate in the Fiesta Committee and
Educational Committee planning meetings.To learn more
about the individual guilds, go to Guilds.
The electronic Fiber Arts Newsletter (eFAN) is
another component of the Council's ongoing efforts to
publicize and encourage interest in the fiber arts. We publish a
monthly electronic Fiber Arts Newsletter (eFAN) of events and
exhibits in New Mexico. At Fiber Arts Newsletter, you can
