North Missouri Fiber Artists

North Missouri Fiber Artists

The purpose of this group is to explore the fiber arts and related topics. We seek to inspire, encourage, educate and share the joys of fiber arts with others. We provide a forum for showing work and getting meaningful feedback. The current interests of active members are broad including: sewing, cross stitch, dyeing, spinning, knitting, crochet and weaving. Exchange information and ideas. The group is open to anyone, at any stage of development in the fiber arts (from “want to learn” to expert) who is interested in participating in the Guild. We currently meet on the third Saturday of most months from 2-4 pm.
