NEFA invests in artists and communities and fosters equitable access to the arts, enriching the cultural landscape in New England and the nation. NEFA accomplishes this by granting funds to artists and cultural organizations; connecting them to each other and their audiences; and analyzing their economic contributions. NEFA serves as a regional partner for the National Endowment for the Arts, New England’s state arts agencies, and private foundations. Learn more at www.nefa.org.

Last year we had our first yarn auction and fibery yard sale and it was AWESOME! We are going to do it again in January, so we are asking for donations of yarn, fiber, tools, magazines and anything related – if you have anything unloved, we will take it off your hands! Bring it to any meeting, or email email@example.com to arrange pickup/delivery.
