Thank you for your participation in this year's festival Featured Event. We hope you learn something interesting about your treasured heirloom.
The CNY Fiber Artists and Producers, Inc. is pleased to announce we have received some grant assistance for support of this year's annual festival. We would like to thank Farm Credit Northeast AgEnhancement for their contribution and the subsequent support of the Farm Credit East local offices in Sangerfield and Cobleskill. Farm Credit Northeast AgEnhancement supports programs, projects, and events that are intended to strengthen agriculture, commercial fishing, and the forest products sector in the Northeast. This program is a combined effort of Farm Credit East, Yankee Farm Credit, and CoBank.
We are please to announce that our 2017 CNY Fiber Arts Festival was selected to receive a 2017 Community Arts Grant. This project was made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by CNY Arts. We are also appreciative of this funding for our festival.
All monies received will be used to support our educational features which inspire adults and children, experienced craftspeople and amateurs, rural community members, and urban visitors from across the state and beyond.
We also appreciate each of our sponsors who step forward to lend a helping hand including those that donate their time, talents, as well as financial support.
Thank you -
