Austin Fiber Artists Open House
6:30 to 8:30 South Austin Location
Please visit us during our Open House on Thursday evening, June 17th, from 6:45 to 8:30 at the Holy Cross Lutheran Church fellowship hall on South Lamar. The address is 4622 South Lamar. There are two parking lots available but it’s easy to miss the first one’s entrance; it’s right across from the on-ramp to 290 south. The second one is past the church.
Come and see fiber arts technique demonstrations and participate in hands-on activities. We will have art exhibits by our members and food to enjoy. Search for art supplies in our Fiber Flea Market jumble table. We’ll have door prizes throughout the evening.

Come to an AFA Meeting
Share your talents, learn new skills, have fun!
I’ve been attending AFA meetings for years and I have many great memories from day one. 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.
