Meetings are held once a month.

Our next Meeting will be:
08/07/14 @ Palmer Park Meadows Pavilion

Our annual picnic and Christmas in the Summer gift exchange will be held at Palmer Park Meadows Pavilion on August 7.  The address is 3650 Maizeland Road, Colorado Springs.  

The entry to Palmer Park you will want to use is near the intersection of Academy Blvd. and Maizeland Rd.  When you turn into the park, the parking and pavilion are an almost immediate right.  

If you would like to participate in the annual Christmas in the Summer Gift Exchange, bring something you have made, nicely wrapped.  Last year we had so many beautiful items brought and the only complaint was from those that did not participate!  So think about participating this year!

We ask that you bring your own main course, a side dish or dessert with necessary serving utensils to share with the group, your own place setting (i.e., plates, cups, silverware) and your own beverage.

This year, members of the organization will be at the park around 1pm to set up for a dyeing extravaganza.  We will do yarn and silk scarf dyeing, Mary Madison will show us how to do some beautiful dyeing of silk scarves using rusty things and regular dye, so please try to bring anything that is rusty so we can put it in the rust dyeing pot (within reason, please no rusty grills or cars!)

We will also announce new board nominations and will accept membership dues accompanied by a new membership application forms, which can be downloaded here.

Silent Auction 2014

As you all know this year's event will be a little different. Please read the events page on this website for more information.

The board and event committee has decided on a different fundraiser this year: A silent auction and we need your help.

What we envision for the Silent Auction is a very upscale, gallery-type display of items donated by the FRFA members, a small ensemble of musicians playing nice music, wine, cheese, veggies, etc. to create an atmosphere similar to what you would find in an art gallery.  People would bid on items throughout the evening (by putting their name and their bid on a sheet next to the item).  At a selected time, the bidding would close. And the highest bidder will “win” the item. 

We would ask that each member of FRFA consider donating one or two items of their work to this Silent Auction.  Not necessarily your most expensive item, obviously.  But something that you have made that you would be willing to gift to FRFA to use in the auction. 

Please remember that our Annual Holiday Sale brought in a considerable amount of money to this organization and, with that, we have been able to keep our dues low.  Since we will not have the benefit of the Annual Sale this year, we really need this event to help our organization stay on its fiscal feet and have the funds to prepare for the next phase, to bring in guest speakers and, hopefully, have some mini workshops/programs.  

We would like to hear from you!
