The MAFA 2021 Conference Is Going Virtual!
Conference 2021 Update MAFA 2021 VIRTUAL Conference - June 24 - 27, 2021.
The conference is really coming together! In our new format we will offer a variety of class lengths from 2-hour classes to 1-day and 2-day workshops. Attendees can register for any combination of classes over the four days. Since most classes will be recorded and available to watch after the conference, there will be time to take in hands-on info at your own pace.
Along with classes, there will be daily lectures at lunch and late afternoon, a keynote address by Jane Dunnewold, fiber art exhibit, fashion show and exhibit, towel exchange, and the vendor marketplace. Plus, casual gathering times to hang out with your fiber friends at Morning Coffee and Evening Drop-in.
Conference details will be updated on the MAFA website and social media, by bi-monthly email to Reps and previous attendees, and here in the Reps News.
Members, and anyone interested, are invited to join the MAFA News email list by adding your address at the bottom of any website page. And follow us on social media for updates – find those links at the top of the website.
Here are some key Conference dates: ● Signups for the virtual Towel Exchange, Fiber Art Exhibit, and Fashion Show and Exhibit will open January 15th. Details and entry forms here:
● The catalog will be published February 20th with complete class listings and registration details. It will be linked on the MAFA website and emailed to all.
● We will offer sample classes in March so you can get a feel for what a virtual hands-on class or lecture-style class will be like. Dates TBA, and we’ll post a recording if you can’t attend live.
● Registration will open April 10th — a little later than usual since we don’t all have to make travel arrangements.
