Bringing together professional and amateur artists alike, the Athens Fibercraft Guild is home to a network of knitters, weavers, spinners, fabric designers, quilters and other fiber artists. The 40 or so members currently meet the second Tuesday of every month at Lyndon House Arts Center for lectures, demonstrations and a show-and-tell. Outside of meetings they host special workshops, participate in community-outreach programs and make appearances at such events as the annual Harvest Festival and Lickskillet Artist Market. The guild’s afternoon celebration at the mall, held near JC Penney’s first-floor entrance, will feature craft demonstrations, weaving lessons, a visual review of the group’s history and a display of members’ creations.
