Welcome to Dallas Area Fiber Artists!
Calling all art quilters, doll makers, stampers, bead crazies and mixed-media maniacs. If you've got fiber in your work, join us and come get your art on! See the calendar of upcoming programs here.
DAFA meets the 4th Monday of each month at 6:45 p.m. at The Point, Center for Arts and Education on the campus of C.C. Young Retirement Community, 4847 West Lawther Drive, in Dallas.
July 28 Meeting: Summer Potluck and Art Swap
Celebrate summer and a new year of DAFA creativity at our next meeting -- Monday, July 28. For the potluck, bring something delicious to share, and for the art swap, bring a small piece of your original art. It should be a well-executed piece that you have recently made yourself (not something Aunt Tillie made long ago). Each participating member goes home with original art made by another DAFA member, and it's wonderful to hear the stories behind all the lovely pieces. Paricipation is, of course, optional. Find details here.
Community Service Project: Dress a Girl Around the World
Brenda McKinney and Barbara Kirksey invite your participation in a DAFA community service project -- making dresses for "Dress a Girl Around the World." DAFA's efforts will be part of the well-known international project that supplies simple dresses for young girls in need of love, respect and something to wear.
Members who sew are encouraged to use their spare time this summer making "pillowcase dresses." Others are encouraged to help with supplies and other kinds of assistance. (Find more information on the Community Service page.) More group play days/ work days like the one on May 17 will be scheduled soon.
Coming in August: SAQA Texas Quilts
DAFA member Heather Pregger, who is the chair of the North Texas chapter of Studio Art Quilt Associates, brings us a trunk show of "Texas quilts." Watch here for more information.
