Welcome to the ultimate international fiber art experience, HGA’s Convergence® conference where you can immerse yourself in the inspiration and stimulation of exhibits, classes, textile tours, shopping and more!
The fabulous annual fiber arts show and market, Fiber Arts Tucson, is back for 2021. After being canceled for 2020, the extravaganza is back for two great days of shopping, viewing, learning about, and trying out the Fiber Arts. Fiber Arts Tucson 2021 will be held Friday, October 22nd (1-7 pm) and Saturday, October 23rd (10 am – 2 pm) at St. Francis in the Foothills, on the corner of Swan and River Roads. The show and sale are free and open to the public. Attendees can take a tour through the history of the fiber arts – spinning, weaving, tapestry, dyeing, basketry, knitting, felting, jewelry making and watch artists at work. Thousands of locally hand-made items to wear, decorate your home or give as gifts are for sale in the marketplace. Two special initiatives of the show raise money for the Community Food Bank and to support the philanthropic efforts of the guild. All proceeds from “Potholders for Food” will go directly to the Community Food Bank, and the money raised from the sale of “Tucson Rocks” will help the guild in its support for indigenous weaving communities in the Americas.
