Our 75th Diamond Anniversary

In 2019, we will celebrate 75 years of FTWG conferences.

Join in the celebration!

 Fiber Exhibit:

The 2019 Fiber Exhibit will have a special category just for the Diamond Celebration. Enter any item with a diamond design or something made with sparkly fibers.

 Diamond Celebration Bag:

A gift for all conference attendees.

 FTWG Anniversary Cookbook:

Submit your recipes for a special guild cookbook with a weaving theme. There will be a contest to name the book. See the cookbook segment below for details.

 Cake Celebration:

Enjoy a special dessert at the 2019 Conference.

 Charity Challenge:

Our goal is to collect and donate 75 of your handmade items. Blankets will go to Project Linus. Hats, scarves, and mittens will go to Hats 4 the Homeless.

 Fashion Show:

Work the runway in a fashion show with a diamond theme.

 Photo Area

Pose with diamond-themed props and we’ll take your photo on Thursday night for Facebook.  If you’d like, bring your own special hat or props.  You can use your own camera for more photos any time during the rest of the weekend.

More details on these anniversary events will be emailed to FTWG members and posted on the FTWG Facebook page over the next year.
