You are invited-

So very excited to finally get this all started. So if you are in NY please come join us:

We invite you to be a part of a collective of fiber artists in New York City. Crystal and I have been so inspired by the artists connecting through the local fiber community. We are hoping to create a collective of fiber artists to share opportunities, benefit form regular critique, curate exhibits, and simply create community and get the word out about the awesome things being done in fiber.

You do not need to be an artist that only works in fiber but the collective itself will have a focus towards this.

Anyone and everyone is welcome so please forward to all your fiber artist friends or anyone you think might be interested.

The first meeting will focus on discussion of what members would like to see come out of the meetings and collective, brainstorming, etc, We will meet either monthly or bi-monthly. Next meeting will include critiques of up to 2 member artists. Location will rotate from members homes and studios.

Please come with ideas and opportunities to share.
As the collective grows we will create a website with gallery pages, links, and opportunities.

The first meeting will be held at:

28 St. Marks Ave #3
Brooklyn, NY 11217
(near Atlantic Center train station)

Sunday, March 21st, 5:00

Please RSVP to Crystal Gregory crystalirenegregory(at) gmail com

We hope to see you all there!
Crystal Gregory and Joetta Maue
