Dear Friends,

Coming up in Spring 2018, Midwest Fiber Arts Trails is hosting three weekend events. And they are loaded with fabulous opportunities to take your business and fiber arts skills repertoire to the next level! Taught by Midwest Fiber Arts Trails members, this list of workshop choices is diverse by offering a wide variety of subjects from beginner to advanced. They’re sorted by subject matter because I think that’s what people select first. Think outside the box and consider taking a workshop that will stretch your skills. The teachers are excellent, friendly and want you to have a fun experience.

More workshops will be added over the next couple of weeks so check back!
