Fiesta 2017 is over, and we all had a wonderful time. We will be posting the winners in each division as they are received. Keep watching the website during the summer as we update the Fiesta web pages and post photos of all the exhibits and events.



DEADLINE for all Scholarship applications is JUNE 30, 2017. Don't miss the opportunity to be awarded a scholarship. We are introducing a new Youth Scholarship to our list of scholarships. Click to see a listing of all the available scholarships for 2017.



The Fiber Arts Fiesta is the Council's main fundraiser and is presented biennially in odd years with the cooperation of the Council's co-sponsoring guilds (now numbering 17). 2015 BEST of SHOW (for judged entries) and VIEWERS' CHOICE (for non-judged entries) are showing in the carousel above. We will be putting up 2017 winners soon.

The Fiber Arts Education Committee offers opportunities in keeping with the Council's educational mission. Scholarships and monetary funding for individuals and guild programs are now available by application to the Council. Additionally, there are three fiber arts storyboards available for educational purposes. Click Here for further information about the Education Committee. And, learn about other Fiber Arts Exhibits. We had a great time at the Colors of the Southwest show in April, 2016 at the Albuquerque Garden Center.

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.

Council Board members are drawn from the guilds' membership. The current Board Officers and Directors are listed at Council Board.

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 read the latest issue, as well as back issues.
