Please help us thank the 45 very generous donors who have given nearly $6,800 during our online fundraiser, Thriving Together. Their financial support means more textile-focused classes, tours, events, and exhibitions for us all. Want to help, too? Donate Now and make a difference!
With sixteen vendors and over 130 happy customers, Fiber Flea Market 2021 was a rousing success! Bargains were the focus of the day, but there were also plenty of fun conversations between fiber friends and even birthday cake and wine/sangria to end the day on a very sweet note.
We are honored and delighted to be one of 135 recipients of a FY22 Bridge Grant from the Georgia Council for the Arts. Our $6,000 grant funds general operating expenses such as rent and utilities, and it requires a 1:1 match from SEFAA.
