MAFA is a wonderful fiber experience! It is an extravaganza held on a college campus, this year at Millersville University in Millersville, PA, with teachers from the knitting, weaving, and spinning worlds. There are vendors, competitions, and a fashion show. It will be held from June 27-30, 2019. You can find out more about the whole event by visiting the website.
One of the special things about MAFA is that the classes are 15 hours long over 2 1/2 days, so the students get deep immersion into their chosen field of study. I am excited to be a part of this year’s faculty, and thrilled to be teaching Scottish Sanquhar gloves there. (It’s one of my favorite classes and I don’t often get the chance to teach it. You can view all the classes being offered here. There are still a bunch of classes not yet full.
We all stay in dorms and eat in the cafeteria, and have a ball! Registration is open until May 31. I hope to see you there!
