About the New Mexico Silk Painters Guild:
Formed in 1995, New Mexico Silk Painters Guild is an organization of fiber/textile artists who work in various surface design media. We meet regularly to share our work and to plan our frequent group shows and occasional workshops. Surface Design includes silk painting, art quilting, wax resist (batik), shibori, and wearable art. Several in our guild are members of SPIN (Silk Painters International). We strive to maintain a group of friendship with the open exchange of ideas and techniques.
We are members of Silk Painters International, sponsor of the Spin Festival, October 5-12, 2018, at Arrowmont, TN.
