Each year IQI members participate in the Fine Art of Fiber. The Fine Art of Fiber is an annual event sponsored jointly by Illinois Quilters, Inc. the Weavers Guild of the North Shore, and the North Suburban Needle Arts Guild. Held the first weekend of November, FAOF attracted over 7,000 visitors last year. The show includes exhibits, a boutique, lectures, a silent auction to benefit the sponsoring organizations, and a fashion show. Only members of the sponsoring organizations may exhibit at FAOF and we encourage every IQI member to join in the fun as an exhibitor and as a volunteer.
