Fiber Forum

About the Forum

Fiber Forum was organized in 1992 in order to advance embroidery as an art form through the exhibition of original works of exceptional merit. To this end, the group endeavors to have a biennial exhibit in art centers, galleries, or museums throughout the country. It also exhibits annually at the National Seminar in the Education Exhibit.

New Members are juried in each year by accredited judges on the basis of both aesthetic achievement and technical skill. Members are juried through digital photos of original, non-teaching pieces. To remain a member of Fiber Forum requires re-jurying at least every three years with digital photo submissions of members’ new work. This procedure encourages each person to set a learning challenge and helps to attain personal goals. Upon acceptance, the membership fee is $25.00 annually and it can be paid online hereIf you have questions, feel free to contact the forum chair Sharon Ahmed at sharonahmed2000@yahoo.com
