The Fresno FiberArts Guild was founded in September 1972 to promote interest and education in fiber arts, provide stimulating lectures and workshops by prominent artists, preserve the arts of traditional needlework and other fiber forms, encourage creativity and quality craftsmanship, and exhibit members' work. Meetings are held the third Saturday of the month, September through April (excepting December) at the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Service Center at 5340 North Fresno St. Our biennial Fashion Show and Exhibit Fundraiser is held in May of even-numbered years. At year's end, a display and sign-up for the next Guild program year of classes is held. Yearly membership dues are $45.00 and include a monthly newsletter, monthly guest artist-lecturer, mini-workshops by talented members, use of the Guild library, meetings of special interest groups, and participation in displays and fiber-related events. New members are welcomed any time during the year. Guests may attend a monthly meeting and lecture for $10.00. Attendance in workshops is subject to available space and a special non-member fee in addition to the regular workshop fee.
