Las Tejedoras Fiber Arts Guild group show at the Main Library during the month of February. Reception will be held on Thursday, February 9, 6:00-7:30 p.m.

Las Tejedoras Fiber Arts Guild has a lovely group show on display at the Main Library during the month of February. Please stop in and check it out in the 2nd floor Tybie Davis Satin Gallery. They will be holding an opening reception on Thursday, February 9, from 6:00-7:30 p.m.

Here’s a little bit about the group from their website, http://www.lastejedoras.org/:

“Las Tejedoras is a northern New Mexico association of fiber artists that meets monthly (September-May) in Santa Fe. Founded in 1972 with just twenty members, today we have over 100 members of all levels of experience and fiber art disciplines to include: weaving, spinning, dyeing, quilting, felting, knitting, crocheting, beading, rug making, embroidery, fabric painting, etc.”

“Our members’ creations reflect the rich fiber heritage of Santa Fe and northern New Mexico.
Membership is open to anyone who loves the fiber arts.”

“If you would like to meet other fiber artists and craftsmen, you are welcome to attend one of our meetings and see what we are all about.”
