Fiber Exhibit

The Fiber Exhibit is a competition. In order to enter, you must (1) be a member of FTWG; and (2) be present onsite to submit your entry and pick it up at the end of the Conference, or give someone your items to enter and pick up for you. FTWG does not receive entries via mail and does not mail entries back at the end of the event. There is no entrance fee for items.

You may enter an item in only one category, and for items that might reasonably fit into multiple categories, it is your decision which category you’d like to put it in. If a particular category has a substantial number of entries, the organizers may choose to split it into subcategories.

FTWG Attendees vote on their favorite projects in each category, and ribbons are awarded to those with the highest number of votes.

Fashion Show

The Fashion Show takes place on Friday evening, after dinner. Everyone in attendance is welcome to enter in the fashion show. This event is a Show and Tell extravaganza; it is not a competition. Most people model their own entries, but other attendees also serve as models.

The theme for the 2024 Fashion Show is “Weavers Just Want to Have Fun!”

After Party

We have an After Party on both Friday and Saturday evenings. The After Party is a casual event, and an opportunity to hang out and chat with other attendees. Of course you are welcome to bring your portable projects to work on while chatting. The event takes place in a suite that has full length windows facing towards the Disney parks so we are able to see the fireworks from all four parks during the After Party!
