The Fiber Arts Center of the Eastern Shore (FACES) is a one-of-a-kind organization supporting the specific interests, needs and art forms of fiber artists. Thanks to the support of our members, volunteers, staff and patrons, we’ve had a great year. We have some great things to look forward to so we hope you will consider renewing or joining to support us as we move forward.
If you have recently renewed, we ask that you help us spread the word to other who might be interested in support our mission to:
- Provide a central networking facility for fiber arts in the region:
- Promote public engagement with fiber artists, groups and businesses;
- Increase public access to and education about fiber art;
- Foster creativity in all areas of fiber art; and
- Work to preserve fiber art skills and traditions.
Because of the support of our community, we’ve been able to accomplish some pretty amazing things this year.
- We staged six exhibits in our gallery space.
- We held classes and workshops throughout the year on such skills as hand quilting, chair caning, and weaving.
- We applied for and were awarded a grant to expand our online presence and provide social media training and online selling services to our directory members.
- Throughout the year we’ve welcomed hundreds of people through our doors to learn about the fiber arts and its rich tradition on the Eastern Shore. This included two visits from Maryland’s First Lady, Yumi Hogan.
2019 is shaping up to be an even bigger year for FACES. By far, the biggest thing on our horizon is our anticipated launch as a stand-alone nonprofit organization, separate from the Caroline County Council of Arts. We are forging ahead, focused on promoting and supporting fiber arts and its enthusiasts, artists, groups and businesses throughout Delmarva.
We need your help reaching our goal of 200 active members! Members enjoy a variety of benefits. Depending on your level, benefits may include access to our Social Media and Etsy coaches, discounted classes, workshops and advertising, and a listing in our online directory.
