President's Message

Another great conference is history! Conversations among attendees indicate that my silk spinning class was not the only wonderful one. There were a few snags and bumps, but teamwork, flexibility, and perseverance of our dedicated conference volunteers prevailed.

Jennifer Willams, winner of our 2016 scholarship, presented her adventure at Braids 2016, bringing us all along for her exciting ride. Melissa W. Dunning lead us in the old tradition of wool waulking, a perfect example of teamwork in action. The vendors were awesome and the guild tables outstanding. There are so many talented people in our group.

Michele Belson has already lined up a great roster of proposed classes for our next conference, and volunteers are already thinking up exciting and wonderful things for us to experience…and a little commercial here: We can always use new ideas and more volunteers. Mark the calendars for next year: March 15 - March 18, 2018.
