Weave your way through northern New Mexico!
Crawl with Us!
Join us this weekend for the 2nd annual Fiber Arts Crawl!

The Fuller Lodge Art Center is the hub of the tour in Los Alamos with other wonderful venues to visit and artists to see. Pick up your passport and crawl around northern New Mexico to experience the rich fiber arts culture
of this beautiful state!
Whether you weave, felt, dye, knit, or are just interested in New Mexico’s long history with the fiber arts, the Española Valley Fiber Arts Center’s NM Fiber Crawl is a fascinating way to experience the entire tradition.

Over the weekend, fiber fans can explore the farms where it all began, meet people who hand spin the yarn and the artists who work with it, and visit the galleries and museums highlighting the traditional as well as the most cutting-edge work in the state.

Beginning in Albuquerque and winding north to Tierra Amarilla, the Crawl features conversations with artists, exclusive access to gallery and museum collections, hands-on demonstrations, and chances to win prizes, including weekend getaways and great meals. And for those who are happy to do more than just look, there are plenty of opportunities to buy products directly from local producers and artists.
