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. 2017 BEST of SHOW (for judged entries) and VIEWERS' CHOICE (for non-judged entries) are showing in the carousel above.

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.
