We will not be holding the Midwest Fiber & Folk Art Fair in 2015. We were not able to get a contract that would give us enough time to do the Fair justice.

Scholarship: The scholarship was funded as part of the MFFAF. It will not be available this year.

Do It In Public: Thank you for sharing your projects with us throughout the years. We have enjoyed meeting you! We are putting all our efforts into finding a new venue at this time, and have not scheduled any DIIPs.


What about 2016 and the future? We have been looking at different venues. We will not be able to hold the Fair until we find a venue that both respects what we do and is willing to book in advance. Teachers and vendors are much in demand and require a year or more advance notice. We must have that time to plan.  Once we find that venue, and find some corporate sponsorship, we will be able to continue the Fair.

We loved putting on the Fair for you! We loved celebrating the work of your hands and sharing our passion for fibers with you. Thank you for 8 wonderful years!
