President's Message

Our 2015 Conference is over.
Those who attended and those who came to visit had a good time. There was lots of shopping and super workshops. Plans are underway for our next event, the 2016 Mini Workshop Conference. We will have a weekend with lots of interesting and fun classes. This will be your chance to try something you have always wanted to do; or to refresh your skills on something you have done in the past; or to just play and visit with friends.

We are looking for instructors for those 50 plus mini classes, so consider sharing one of your specialties with other fiber enthusiasts. Check the article below and contact Fonda if you are willing to teach a mini class.

Jan Beasley will be stepping into the President's role beginning June 1, 2015, and I will be "retiring" from those duties.

Many thanks to all who supported and worked with me during these past years, I have learned from you!! I have made many new friends.
Let's keep those friendships as we move towards 2016.

Jody

We are now working on the March 2016 mini Conference.

Conference dates are 3-17-2016 thru 3-20-2016.

Our interests are in weaving, spinning, basketry, felting, knitting/crochet, dyeing/surface design and all other related fiber arts.

We hold a mini-style conference every 4 years. This consists of classes held on Thursday afternoon (1-5), Friday morning (9-12) and afternoon (1:30-5), Saturday (morning and afternoon) and Sunday (9-12).

We offer about 50 classes during this 3 day weekend. You can teach a variety of classes or repeat a class. Classes can be any length: 1, 2, 3 or 4 hours; 2 part classes; or classes requiring 2 different days if needed.
Instructors are welcome to register and take classes in addition to teaching.

Each teacher sets their own price for the mini class(s), selects the amount of time needed for each, maximum and minimum number of students, as well as supplies needed. A supply fee can be collected by the instructor if the instructor furnishes any supplies. Class fees are separate from supply fees. Teachers may send proposals for several classes.

To submit a proposal, please complete this form to submit a class proposal and send it to Fonda. This is a PDF form, and it can either be printed out and sent to Fonda via snail mail, or completed, saved to your documents, and attached to an email to Fonda.
