The Federation sponsors a Traveling Teacher each year for the member guilds in Arizona.

AZ Fed finds a Nationally Known Instructor who is willing to spend several weeks in Arizona and can present workshops and presentations with a fiber arts focus.  Once one (or more) prospective teachers are found, they are presented to the board for selection and approval.
All the member guilds are provided with the available dates and workshops/presentations offered, and they can reserve their spot.
The Federation pays for the teacher to fly into the state and transportation while in Arizona.  The member guilds that book the teacher are responsible for teacher fees, supplies, and hosting them.  Most instructors are very willing to stay at member homes.
If you are an instructor in fiber arts, or know of one, we encourage you to submit the name and contact information to for consideration.
