The International Fiber Collaborative (IFC) was founded in 2008 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. They develop and promote community programs that create collaborative opportunities in art and civic engagement that link learning and creativity in the arts to science, math, engineering, and the humanities. Public programming has been a catalyst for creativity in health care facilities, libraries, schools, museums, and other locations.

The IFC is proud of its efforts in engaging others in community art making, as their growth and success signify the degree to which the organization’s purpose/need is affirmed. For more information on the International Fiber Collaboration, checkout their website,
