Welcome to the website for Lake Area Fiber Artists! This site has been published to introduce our organization to the public and to promote our annual festival of fiber arts.

Lake Area Fiber Artists is a non-profit organization located based in the Lake of the Ozarks, MO area. Our mission is to promote awareness and understanding of the arts of basket-weaving, knitting, crochet, spinning, weaving, rug-hooking, and related arts to our members and the general public. We are a member group of the Lake Arts Council.
