Amelia Williams – Fiber Arts Festival – January 28-30

profile faceThe Sixth Annual Oxford Fiber Arts Festival is almost here and we cannot wait!

The Festival will be held at the Oxford Powerhouse on Friday, January 29 and Saturday, January 30, 2016, with some additional classes and opening reception on Thursday, January 28, 2016.

Every day, we will post information about one of the 22 classes and information about one of the participating vendors.

Our featured teacher today is Amelia Williams.

Amelia grew up in Starkville, and recently moved back to Oxford where her family is from.  During her younger years she learned how to sew, knit, quilt, and do various other craft projects which led to more advanced undertakings such as crochet, tatting, and doing hand embroidery work.  She graduated from Mississippi State University with a degree in Apparel, Textiles, and Merchandising.  She loves pattern making and designing in her spare time and won first place in the “Repurposed Denim” Category at the 2013 FGI Dallas Career Day Fashion Show.  Her philosophy is to never stop learning.

Amelia will be teaching Embellish It.

Call the Shop starting on December 20 to sign up for Amelia’s classes!  Space is limited, so be sure to sign up soon.  For full class listings, visit our class page.
