Some days we question if our organization is having an impact on our community. Each year we grant scholarships to three non-profit institutions to aide in the promotion of fiber arts.
A thank you letter from SAY Si and a thank you email from the Southwest School of Arts state otherwise.
In part, Jon Hinojosa, the SAY Si Artistic, Executive Director states:
“Every gift reaches beyond SAY Si’s doors and into the community because Art is a Gift for All.”
Southwest School of Arts Fiber Program Coordinator, Casey Galloway writes:
“…… Without your donations, many eager students would not have the ability to experience fiber in its infinite possibilities. It is always a joyful experience to witness the work and growth of scholarship students. I also want to thank you for the continued engagement in our fiber workshop offerings, ideas for visiting artists, and collaborations. It is amazing to have such a supportive community behind what we are offering. “
Our organization grants scholarships to institutions to help lift future fiber artists. Our donations, our membership dues, our fundraising help to develop and promote future fiber artists.
From me personally, I say thanks to each of you. As elders of this fiber artist village, I know we take seriously our duty and efforts to reach out and promote our future fiber artists.
Until next time……
LPFF (Love, Peace and Fiber Fun)

The artist (vendor) is responsible for pricing items. Suggestions to vendors and potential customers: bring small bills and change. Vendors have the option of taking cash and/or check. Although vendors may opt to provide recycled shopping bags, it is kinder to the environment if shoppers bring their own bags. Mother Earth thanks you.
