Front Range Fiber Artisans (FRFA) is an inclusive organization devoted to promoting and developing the skills of any person practicing fiber arts, including but not limited to: Basketry, Braiding, Crocheting, Dyeing, Embroidery, Felting, Knitting, Lace Making, Paper Making, Quilting, Sewing, Spinning, Tatting and Weaving.

As the holidays are upon us the Front Range Fiber Artisans will celebrate with a little different twist to the regular monthly meetings at McKenzie Place. We will meet at the Cottonwood Center for the Arts at 427 East Colorado Blvd. on December 3 at 5:30 p.m. Our meeting will be held in the new Thread Lab managed by Fiber Artist, Liz Kettle. Liz will lead the group in making a felt bracelet using the beautiful threads from the Thread Lab. There will be no charge for this activity and everyone will go home with a beautiful bracelet featuring embroidery stitches of their own design. The meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. in the Thread Lab Classroom. Everyone is asked to bring a snack for refreshments during the meeting. More details will be sent in a flyer and will include directions and photos. You may visit the Thread Lab anytime before the meeting as it is always open when the Cottonwood Center for the Arts is open. Stop by and meet Liz.
REGULAR MEETING INFORMATION:
Meetings are held once a month from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
