Join us as we return to our Annual Conference campus on the shores of Lake Yale. Relax under the beautiful oaks as we leave the cares of the world behind for four days of fiber, fun and fellowship. Located near Eustis, Florida, an hour north of Orlando, your hotel room/RV is right here along with a cafeteria where all meals are provided. We offer a full schedule of activities including your choice of a 3-day workshop with an outstanding instructor, a fiber exhibit, fashion show, guild exhibits, commercial vendors and more. Come visit old friends, make new friends and spend four days in a relaxed, old Florida setting.
