International Feltmakers Assocation AGM 2021

We are really pleased there has been so much enthusiasm to join the IFA AGM and conference 2021 via Zoom. There was a rush for places over the weekend and they were soon filled.

For those of you who secured a place, the Zoom link and further information with the meeting protocol will be emailed to you, via MailChimp, on Thursday 25th March (GMT) so please check your inbox and spam/junk folder.

If you are not one of those who will be joining us on Zoom, do not despair. We will be live-streaming the event onto our Facebook Members-Only Group. Failing that, the event will be recorded and uploaded to our YouTube Channel, for you to savour at your leisure (and in whichever time zone you are).

In the meantime, if you have any questions for Ariane and Annemie, the past chairpersons, the committee and Education team, Judit and Nancy or Nicola and Fiona, please can you email our Vice-chair Mandy Nash,  before 20th March so we can prepare them in advance.

We look forward to seeing you during the weekend of 27th and 28th March.

Until then, happy felting…

From all on the committee
