New Mexico Fiber Crawl Starts Friday
Get ready for a fiber-centric romp around our region! Join in the three-day Third Annual New Mexico Fiber Crawl, Friday, May 17, through Sunday, May 19, to celebrate New Mexico’s rich fiber arts heritage and the people who make wonderful fiber creations. The New Mexico Fiber Crawl is an opportunity to explore fiber studios and farms, experience fiber demonstrations, attend special gallery and museum events, win prizes, and visit fiber arts shops.
Whether you are a fiber enthusiast, a visitor, a friend or a collector, the 2019 New Mexico Fiber Crawl is a great way to discover and enjoy the world of fiber arts in northern New Mexico. You’ll meet the weavers, knitters, spinners, felters, embroiderers and new media artists who are sharing their love of the fiber arts at this event. Plus, you’ll have a great time!
“It can be as little or as big as you want,” said Espanola Fiber Arts Center Media Coordinator Danielle Rose. “I’m betting that people will return to their favorite stops all through the year.”
EFAC is coordinating the Fiber Crawl. EVFAC is a nonprofit that cultivates and support multi-generational participation in local, traditional and contemporary fiber arts. Stop by their location at 325 Paseo de Onate, Espanola, for maps, directions and special Crawl merchandise.
The New Mexico Fiber Crawl honors New Mexico’s fiber arts heritage and contemporary culture. Throughout the three-day weekend you will explore the richness and creativity of local fiber artists while their work is on display. As you enter studios, galleries, and farms, you will be able to talk to the artists, touch the work, and learn about artists’ day-to-day routines. Visit stops from Albuquerque to the Colorado Border.
