Fiber Arts Scholarship

Albuquerque Fiber Arts Council Scholarship and Guild

Funding Opportunities

“It allowed me to grow as an artist by learning new skills,” said Abq

MQG member Afton Warrick about the three day class she took from

Betty Busby in Santa Fe in 2013.

Afton was a recipient of the Guild Member Scholarship for Workshops

and Classes provided by the Albuquerque Fiber Arts Council. After

the class she created a wall hanging and she has incorporated

techniques she learned to make other projects since that time.

To fulfill her commitment to the AFAC for being awarded the

scholarship Afton did demonstrations at Thimbleweed Quilters and

Quilts Ole. She also has a tutorial on her blog:
