MAKE is a hub of creativity in western Kentucky and one of our top missions is education in the Arts.

The Paducah Fiber Festival mission is to deepen the connectivity of cultures through creativity with fiber arts. The festival will provide a fun and educational event that displays sheep and fiber products so the public can develop their interest and skills in these areas as well as obtain the supplies and products they desire.
