Friends of Fiber Art International programs are designed to inform and inspire potential collectors by offering privileged visits to art collectors’ homes. These are usually concurrent with important contemporary fiber art shows and events, such as:

EXPOSITIONS that serve collectors like SOFA Chicago held annually.  Fiber program on Friday morning followed by a networking lunch.  Our annual Sunday bus tour takes members to a private collection, important fiber or craft shows in town, a possible architecture visit, group lunch and airport drop off.  Usually SOFA management gives VIP passes to our sponsor ($100) and higher members.

EXHIBITIONS such as Quilt National and the International Triennial of Tapestry in Poland, which surveys the state of fiber art around the world.

CONFERENCES presented by artist organizations like ATA, HGA, NBO, SAQA, SDA, SPIN and one which serves curators and scholars, the Textile Society of America (TSA).
