Fantastic Fibers Miami was launched in January, 2016 as a result of years of dreaming, imagining, and strategic planning by Pamela Palma. It is a fiber arts collective, a guild for those who work with textiles as their means of creative expression.
Its purpose is to provide educational opportunities and inspiration; enhance artistic skills and foster camaraderie among its members. Fantastic Fibers Miami seeks to raise the profile of fiber art within the larger Miami community through participatory public events and exhibitions, workshops and classes.
Fiber as an artistic medium includes works comprised of weaving, knitting, stitchery, embroidery, felting, quilting, crochet; dyeing, printing and painting of yarn and fabric; wearable art and fiber installation.
