The state of New Mexico has a vast wealth of textile traditions which have been assimilated and have evolved from many diverse cultures throughout time. These traditions are well steeped into the textile arts of this state which has an extensive cultural history, therefore the upcoming Fiber Crawl in May 2017 will allow fiber artists, cultural centers, farms and museums to open their doors and expose the Fiber Crawl participants to indulge in unforgettable experiences in fiber art works, gain a greater understanding of where their materials come from and are processed into final products and how they are used and have been used in the past within the diverse cultures and contexts of New Mexico.
With great excitement, and much anticipation we are announcing the first ever Fiber Crawl in this state which will celebrate New Mexico as a fiber arts destination.
The tour is a two-day event spanning from Taos, Española, Santa Fe and Albuquerque. This exciting upcoming event is designed for fiber enthusiasts such as knitters, spinners, weavers, felters, crocheters, etc. We will also be exploring many places of interest which will allow for sightseeing and artisans in northern New Mexico on the way between sites.
Sites will offer discounts, demonstrations and events to draw in the curious and those who want to learn a skill or meet the artists. Deals and discounts are offered through local sponsors and iclude interesting places to sightsee and hang out, delicious eateries and other places of interest.
In order to join us and the other participants on this exciting tour of art, culture and education that will no doubt open your mind to the ever expanding fiber arts culture in New Mexico you can pick up a Fiber Crawl passport at a participating site or download it and print your own.
