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.
We welcome new members interested in exploring fiber arts of all kinds.
Members are not required to have any particular level of expertise – only a desire to learn and to share. If you would like to become a member today, download and fill out our membership form and send it to us or bring it to the next meeting.
REGULAR MEETING INFORMATION:
Meetings are held once a month on the first Thursday of each month (except for August-annual picnic, and when noted below), from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Textiles West, 6545 N. Academy Blvd., Colorado Springs. If the meeting is moved offsite, it will be noted here on the website, and if you are a member a reminder notice will be sent to you. 🙂
Pine Needle basketry will be the program for this night. This project will take a little longer so plan on staying a bit longer if you are able. Elizabeth Barber will be our instructor for making our pine needle baskets.
There is a $5 fee per person to cover supply cost.
Also, fiscal year for FRFA recently began, so that means membership dues of $15 for the year is due.
All levels of experience welcome.
Please RSVP as the instructor has to do some prep work for us. Thank you.
