July 2021 Week 2 E-Newsletter
Thriving Together Fundraiser

The SEFAA Center is open again and in-person classes start this weekend. It is time to connect in-person and online to learn, create, and explore more together. It is time to thrive together! Let’s enjoy more of what we love - more classes, tours, events, and exhibitions, more amazing instructors, and more full-tuition scholarships. Let’s share our passion for textiles and nurture our community. We can do it all if we all contribute.

Why is your one-time or monthly donation important? Because your gift will fund programming growth. Because your gift is an expression of your joy in making, your love of creativity, and your passion for textiles. And, because giving now is the perfect way to celebrate SEFAA’s 12 years of growth, grit, and commitment to being your textile resource. Your gift is important because it allows us to celebrate, support, and perpetuate all textile arts together.
