MoFA, a community sharing a love of fiber

We are weavers, basket makers, spinners, knitters, quilters, paper makers, surface designers and more! While we have varying interests and levels of expertise, we all enthusiastically share the goal of promoting opportunities for all fiber artists wherever they may live and increasing the public awareness of fiber art.


Due to the Corona Virus, the 2020 MoFA KAWS Conference is cancelled.

Shirley Eley Nachtrieb

Shirley Nachtrieb loves color and texture! She is a mixed media artist with a background in fibers. She creates art that speaks from her heart and reflects who she is as an artist. Paper, paint, thread, fabric, and fibers stimulate her imagination as she designs, dolls, quilts, and mixed media art. Many of her pieces are designed from repurposed paper and cloth. Her latest creations include remnants from wedding dresses and silk blouses. Shirley lives in St. Charles, Missouri where she teaches workshops and classes.
