|WHAT'S NEW AT MAWS!
MAWS is a non - profit organization whose purpose is to
promote and encourage fiber arts throughout the state of
Montana, and to help fiber artists forge links to their peers.
THE organization promotes interest in the fiber arts -
including weaving, spinning, felting, basketry and
associated fiber arts. The primary vehicle for this is the
MAWS Conference held every two years in a different city
in Montana. At this conference members have
the opportunity to study with top-notch instructors,
participate in shows, and meet others who share the same
passion for fiber arts. A variety of vendors provide
equipment, books, fiber, and more.
MAWS strives to foster communication between individuals
and groups engaged in handcrafted fiber arts.
MAWS keeps members in touch through its quarterly
MAWS provides grants to guilds who wish to sponsor a
workshop, and are willing to open it to others in the state.
These workshops allow students to gain knowledge in
specific fiber arts from great instructors.
IN short, membership in MAWS is the best way to improve
your craft and meet others doing the same. In a state
where people are so spread apart, MAWS brings you
MEMBERSHIP privileges include the biannual conference,
MAWS newsletter, and access to great workshops.
THE annual membership fee is $8. You can join through
your local guild or as an individual.
