2021 Virtual FTWG Conference
March 19-21, 2021
Join us for our first ever Virtual Conference, via Zoom!
COVID keeps us physically distanced, but that doesn’t mean we can’t see each other! Our Virtual Conference includes programs on a wide variety of weaving topics as well as virtual versions of the other events our in-person attendees love: Vendors, Guild Tables, a Fashion Show and a Fiber Exhibit. We have opportunities to socialize with breakout rooms, a pajama party, and Sunday morning brunch. We hope you’re able to join us!
Registration is online only.
$40 for FTWG Members. $50 for General Public.
This year, we have two categories of vendors. All vendors will have a web page here on the FTWG website, visible only to those who are registered. This page will include a link to the vendor’s website and five photos representing a sample of their products. Some vendors are also including a discount code on this page, just for FTWG attendees.
Featured vendors will also have a presentation at some point during the live event and you’ll be able to visit with them in a break out room immediately after that presentation, in order to ask questions about their products.
All purchases of products will take place through the vendor’s website.
