The Fresno FiberArts Guild, Inc. has several purposes that focus on preserving fiber arts, educating the public about fiber arts and encouraging cooperation among fiber artisans. Many of our programs focus on promoting interest and education in the fiber arts. We accomplish this is through our scholarship program.
Each year the Guild awards one or two $1000 Legacy Scholarships, to students studying in a college or university majoring in some aspect of fiber arts. Applications are generally available in early January and must be completed and returned in April with two letters of recommendation and the applicant indicating who their mentor has been that encouraged their fiber arts interest and learning. Scholarship announcements are made in mid-May and the recipients are expected to provide a display for the membership to see their work and fiber interests at either our Fashion Show or Membership and Workshop Sign-up Event (the third Saturday of May).
