The Albuquerque Fiber Arts Council, Inc.
Promoting Fiber Art in New Mexico
Mission Statement:
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 community.

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 read the latest issue, as well as back issues. To have the eFAN emailed directly to you, complete the subscription form.

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). We are gearing up for our 10th Anniversary Fiesta, in May, 2015!
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 otherFiber Arts Exhibits. We are very excited about the November Fiber Arts Cruising Route 66 show at the Old Corrales Church!
