ANWG 2017 - Victoria BC

The yarns are packed up, the booth is disassembled, and we're heading for home. What a great time we had at the conference of The Association of Northwest Weavers' Guilds! This year it was held at the University of Victoria, hosted by the Victoria Weavers' Guild. These fabulously organized and good-natured people spoiled us senseless. They helped us unload our cargo (and load it back up at the end of the conference), they brought us drinking water (it was steaming hot the first few days), and they provided us with a means to get the all-important lattes late in the energy-flagging afternoon.

We saw lots of our fibre friends there. We reconnected with old friends we haven't seen for a long time. We made lots of new friends.  And we had a chance to introduce our broad, varied selection of silk to people who didn't know about us. 

We were hopping-busy the entire 3 days. Apparently word is out that silk is the new black for weavers and spinners! Thanks go out to all of you for your support and ❤❤❤. We hope you love working with silk as much as we do!

Thank you, Victoria Weavers' Guild, for the great job you did herding all of us fibre-cats. We know that Prince George Guild is already busy-busy preparing for ANWG 2019. Can't wait!
