About Us

Incorporated in 2005, the Southwest Women's Fiber Arts Collective is a grassroots non-profit, 501(c)3 organization. Our goal is to stimulate and support successful cottage fiber industry in the Southwest. We provide communication and information among artisans and guilds about art & craft shows and sales, workshops, classes, and teachers. By creating a networking structure we improve opportunities for everyone working in fiber arts to gain skills and financial independence.
