Yearly events include:
- American Craft Council Show - Look for us in the demonstration area where we'll be showcasing many different fiber techniques.

The Textile Society of Atlanta has kindly invited SEFAA members to attend INDIGO presented by Donna Hardy. Fiber artist and indigo dyer Lynn Pollard will be hosting the meeting at her home. Please RSVP if you will be attending.
Donna is considered one of America's premier indigo experts. She is currently researching the most effective ways to grow indigo with Dr. Brian Ward at Clemson University's Coastal Research and Education Center and working with UGA engineering students to create a more efficient way to process indigo.
