The 2013 NW Weavers Conference, sponsored by Association of Northwest Weavers' Guilds, is currently in the planning stages. As more information is available it will be posted here. Mark these days, June 17-23, 2013 on your calendar and check back soon. The conference will be held on the campus of Western Washington University, Bellingham, WA.
The 2013 conference theme is "Crossing Borders, Crossing Threads." It is an appropriate theme for a weaving conference at Western Washington University, so near the Canadian border in Bellingham. It is a theme that honors the influences of the many cultures whose people have crossed borders and brought their weaving traditions with them. The theme also celebrates the influences of woven borders and traditional cultures on design and color in our modern world.
The primary conference host for 2013 is the Seattle Weavers' Guild. Joining the Seattle Weavers Guild members in planning the conference are ANWG member guilds from through northwestern Washington and British Columbia."Exploring Fiber Horizons" Look into the future; see where we are going as fiber artists. Weave the creativity of the past into your fiber explorations; the sky's the limit. Use our theme to reach for your own horizons. Join us!
