Welcome to the MAFA Resources page! Here you will find a variety of materials to help you plan programs and activities. You can also explore a wealth of articles in the Archive or journey on to other fiber resources on the Web via our links.
The Library contains materials from past issues of Threadlines, the MAFA print newsletter, as well as reference materials for MAFA as an organization (bylaws, minutes, and other administrivia). Most importantly, however, it contains instructions, profiles and biographies, program handouts, reviews, editorials, and other articles written by MAFA members, who contributed them to the archive to share with others. The Library becomes a richer place to visit with each contribution. If you're inspired to write a new article for the Library, have an already written article you'd like to share, or would like to help edit and prepare articles for publication to the Library, please contact the MAFA Corresponding Secretary.

MAFA is in the process of compiling a database of instructors and lecturers. Some of this information comes from guild program chairs, some from individuals who were involved in planning a workshop or program, and some from the instructors themselves. To submit information to the instructor database, please fill out this online form. Your information will be added after a MAFA volunteer has reviewed it.
MAFA Reps can click here to request a more detailed version of the Instructor Database that may include comments and, in some cases, contact information for guild program organizers who can share more details about their guild's experiences. The detailed database is available only to official MAFA Reps and requests are checked by name and email addressso make sure that your guild's contact information with MAFA is up-to-date and correct!
