Masters Day April 5, 2018 at DFW Fiber Fest
We are excited to announce our first partnership with DFW (Dallas Fort Worth) Fiber Fest to bring Masters Day to their 12th annual 2018 show, April 5 – 8 which takes place in the Irving Convention Center. Masters Day will be held on Thursday, April 5 from 8:30 am to 5 pm.
We will also provide free knitting advice and help with our Brilliance Bar in the Vendor Hall. You can bring your Masters swatches for comments or any project that you need some advice on. Two co-chairs and at least 6 committee members will be there to teach, assist, hang out, knit and have fun. We’re working on a members get together and will have more info on that soon.
Why DFW Fiber Fest? We have missed doing in person education but don’t have the resources to put on our own show. We are excited about the partnership with DFW Fiber Fest because they are a nonprofit, 100% volunteer organization – just like us. Their annual show has nationally known and local teachers in a range of fiber arts and a very carefully selected set of vendors in the marketplace. We wanted to work with people like us, who understand how much work it can be but are dedicated to bringing their love of craft to others. Located close to the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, it is centrally located in the US.
A full set of teacher descriptions, prices, hotels and schedules will be released in mid October and open up for registrations in November. You can follow their Ravelry Group – (http://www.ravelry.com/groups/dfw-fiber-fest) or sign up for their newsletter at http://dfwfiberfest.org/.
We hope this will be the beginning of a great partnership and look forward to seeing lots of TKGA members there.
