Austin Fiber Artists participated in the Austin Arts Fair on November 23rd. A free event at the Asian American Resource Center, it features live music, free hands-on activities, and crafts for sale. AFA hosted a fabric collage bookmarks table and displayed its trunk show art items.
The fiber collage bookmarks attracted a continuous stream of people. Some stayed for one quick bookmark, others made a series of them. To host this activity, we piled a whole mess of fabric scraps in the middle of the table and let people glue-stick them to cardstock bookmarks that had our information on one side. This was truly fun for the entire family. We had grandmas and kids as young as 2!
