Our Gathering is growing!!!  We have combined the Heart of NM Fiber Gathering with the Harvest Art Festival.  We are now known as Heart of NM Fiber & Art Gathering!  We will be held in conjunction with Wildlife West Nature Park's Harvest Festival.  In 2019 the combined number of vendors doubled from 2018!  This year will be even bigger!  Come join us over Labor Day weekend (September 5th & 6th) at Wildlife West Nature Park in Edgewood, NM.  

Our site is still under construction.  Soon you will find a  downloads for vendor applications and guidelines, competition information and entry blanks, workshop information and sign up form and information and a form for becoming a sponsor.

If you have any questions there is also a contact section.

We hope to see all of you at the 2020 Heart of New Mexico Fiber Gathering!
