Creative Fibre brings together people with a passion for fibre and textile arts and crafts. Spinners, weavers, knitters, dyers, flax workers, felters, crocheters and other makers – from home crafter to professional artist – all are welcome to join, learn, show and share.
Being a member of our organisation is being part of a living heritage of keeping these textile crafts alive. We have over 3,000 members throughout New Zealand and around the world, whose passion is fibre and textile crafts, learning from people with similar ideas and enjoying their friendship. Creative Fibre groups are spread over 15 geographic Areas around New Zealand, each with an Area Delegate and committee that includes representatives from the groups in the area. Each area is autonomous, so their activities vary, but all provide interest and activities such as workshops, retreats, spin-ins and exhibitions.
We offer a full Education programme, including a self-directed learning scheme, study collections which travel the country to inspire and educate members, workshops, lectures and correspondence courses.
Our annual membership fee entitles you to our quarterly magazine, access to our extensive Resource Library, the opportunity to exhibit at our National and Area exhibitions, and to register for our bi-annual National Festival.
With nothing to lose, and everything to gain, why not become a member! We’d love to have you join us.
