popup2019 tinacrittersSWFAC's 5th annual Holiday Fiber Art Sale will be held on Friday and Saturday, November 29 and 30, 2019 from 10 am to 4 pm at the Grant County Conference Center located at 3031 Highway 180 East in Silver City, admission is free. 

Saturday November 30 is "Small Business New Mexico Gross Receipts Tax Holiday" (official name by NM T & R Dept.) and our small businesses at the sale will not collect gross receipts that day! 

The sale is sponsored by the Southwest Women's Fiber Arts Collective (SWFAC), founded in 2005, whose mission is to celebrate fiber art and realize its economic potential.  Board member Jean Hill stated “Community members who know our artists will see them and their many varieties of fiber art at this sale, as well as some new fiber artists. Also new this year will be a booth in the lobby area of a variety of delicious home baked goods by Bev's Kitchen Bakery.”

This Holiday Fiber Arts Sale will feature some very unique fiber items that are truly one of a kind!  Funky and fun felted hats, wonderfully different purses, fabric creature sculptures, wearable fiber art, and even small couches and furniture designed to fit in with your home decor for your furry friends, as well as doggie outfits!  Shop for gifts, or for yourself!

Please see our website, www.fiberartscollective.org for more information about our organization
