AFA Adds Art to Women’s Conference

Volunteers from AFA added fun and fiber education to the Women’s Empowerment Conference (WECon 2016). Using materials from the donation table, we created opportunities for conference attendees to come and sit a while and create something lovely to take home with them. The bookmarks made from glued fabric scraps were as popular as ever and we added finger weaving from donated yarn as well as denim embroidery projects. The tapestry frame attracted many contributing stitches, too.
