AAFG 2022-23 Workshops

Saturday, April 22, 2023 (In-Person/Member Only)
“Fiber Spa: Fascinator Mini Workshop”
10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
The Gathering Room on the second floor of Zion Lutheran Church

The Fiber Spa offers AAFG members studio time to work on projects and share ideas while reconnecting with friends. It’s also an opportunity to get to know new members. Some months will feature a fiber art demonstration. At this Fiber Spa, Anne Flora will lead a mini workshop to create a Fascinator. Using Sinamay, which is woven fiber from the abaca tree, Anne will share how to create a hat form and embellish it with flowers, ribbon, and veiling.

The cost of the materials (the hat form, wire, elastic band, and veiling) is $4.00 and will be collected at the workshop. Participants will choose a color for the fascinator and the elastic band and send their selections to Anne. The fascinator color choices are red, turquoise, and cream. The color choices for the elastic band are black, brown, and white — this should match hair color.

Bring the following materials to the workshop: thread matching the fascinator, sewing needles, scissors, and embellishments for the fascinator (embroidery, ribbon, beads, yarn, silk flowers, etc.).

Pre-registration is required to participate in the mini workshop. The deadline for registering is Monday April 10th. Maximum of 10 participants. To register, or for any questions, contact Anne at

All AAFG members are welcome to gather. The library will be open during lunch time. Bring a project to work on and pack a lunch.
