DFA was organized as a club for fiber arts enthusiasts in 1974. DFA is a designated non-profit (501c3) educational and service organization.
40 years ago, the DFA Library and Equipment Rentals were housed in members’ homes. Meetings were held in public venues and in private homes around the Tri-Cities, Washington. As membership increased, DFA needed a place where members could meet, work, store equipment, and shelve books. The founders’ dream became reality in September 2014 when the DFA celebrated the grand opening of its Guild Studio in Kennewick.
DFA Guild Studio invites you to exercise your creative expression. Looms are warped and ready for weaving. Spinning wheels and carders are ready for loan. Study Groups teach tatting, knitting, basketry and more.
Come learn all you can from the area’s leading fiber experts. Bring your fiber art pieces to show and to sell.
- To promote participation in and appreciation for fine craftsmanship related to the fiber arts.
- To encourage the development and interest of the craft field within the arts, in education, therapy, marketing, and the community as a whole.
