2013 ANWG NW Weavers Conference

ANWG Guilds:

Time To Start Planning Your Booth!

Yes, the conference is more than a year away.  But a lot of planning, weaving, dyeing, spinning, sewing, felting and more has to happen before booth set-up day!

The conference theme for 2013 is Crossing Borders, Crossing Threads.  This theme speaks to the ties that bind us together as 2009 ANWG Booth Photoweavers from both the United States and Canada.  Let this theme of global community be a starting point for your imaginations to “follow the thread” to what binds your guild together and what connects it to all ANWG guilds throughout the northwest and to weavers throughout the world and across time.

As always, booth space is free for each ANWG Guild; this year the booth size will be 8 X 10 with full length side walls. The deadline to reserve your Guild’s Booth is November 15, 2012. Sign-up forms will be available on our website mid July. The Guild Booths will share the WWU Gym (Carver Gymnasium) with all the fiber and weaving marketplace vendors, so there will be a lot of excitement going on under that roof.  Because our space is limited, we will only be able to provide space for 20 booths.  Sign-up will be on a first come, first serve basis.  We will publish the link to the sign-up form in a future newsletter.

2009 ANWG Booth PhotoOn our website you will find a webpage all about booths.  It will be updated as more information becomes available.  But to help get those creative juices flowing we have included a slide show of guild booths from the 2009 conference held in Spokane.  The theme for the 2009 conference was Weaving Waves of Color and the two photos here are from the 2009 booth displays.

Often a guild will come up with a terrific theme for their booth but are unsure how to effectively display the items they have made.  To help you with ideas on how to set up and display the items created, we did a quick search on Pinterest and found some interesting boards.  If you are unfamilar with Pinterest, beware its quite a fun rabbit hole to fall into.  Pinterest is a pinboard-style social photo sharing website that allows users to create and manage theme-based image collections.  So check out these Pinterest Boards: Booths  and Displays.  Or do your own search on Pinterest.

The conference colors can be found in the sidebar on the right and more information about the colors is on our website.  There are many shades of these colors in our logo, but each of the shades starts from one of the colors on the right.
