Right here in Austin Texas! Our workshops offer an intensive experience on a variety of fiber related topics. All levels of of knowledge and skill are addressed. We have workshops from nuno-felting to Shibori to dyeing on silk scarves. The class sizes are kept small to allow maximum workshop experience!

The satellite meeting in Round Rock on the second Tuesday of the month. Join AFA and come to the meetings!
The Northern satellite of AFA will be starting a project that will span the next 3 meetings. We’ll be exploring the possibilities of combining fabric and paper, paint and stitch to make a simply constructed, but oh-so-complex looking book from a single sheet of water color paper. September Meeting: SSP Book 1: Building your Foundation
The south location takes place on the third Wednesday of the month. Join AFA and come to either or both meetings!
AFA meeting will feature Saori weaving with Kathleen Utts from Wimberley. She spent the summer weaving yardage on her Saori loom and is now fashioning garments with her creations. She will have a loom and
demonstrate the ease of weaving Saori. The philosophy is very intriguing for weavers of all ages.
Come to an AFA Meeting
Share your talents, learn new skills, have fun!
What I get from this group is a special creative spark. Sometimes that spark is there on its own in my everyday life and surroundings, but sometimes the spark just won’t ignite. What then?
Well, along comes AFA…the meetings, exhibits, member’s wall and more. What great creativity opportunities the group provides! Learn, go, create, exhibit. Celebrate your individuality.Mary M
