I am looking forward to this conference and other Montana weavers are also planning to attend.  I am planning to send proposals for teaching, even though it is a few years away.  I have been to Victoria a couple times and I enjoyed the city and the area very much.  I am sure that this conference will be well attended.




I'm hoping to make it, too.  :)




I go to Victoria often because my Dad and Brother live there. When exactly is the conference ? Cathie


Oh I see now 2017, is there a usual month?


Victoria is a beautiful city of Canada to explore.I love to be there,to taste the beauty of the city along with the knowledgeable conference.


The preconference workshops run from June 28th to 30th. The conference is on July 1st and 2nd, 2017.

Just a reminder it is getting close to the end of June. We would like to have all our submissions for teaching proposals in by June 30th. We would like see basketry, felting and knitting proposals as well as weaving.  We have now posted the Conference Schedule online. Coming soon we will have an online form for Vendors to fill out and submit.


Hi there!  I am new, somewhat, to the weaving world and to this website/community which I am still exploring.  I was excited to find this group though because I have been invited to attend by two Montana Guild members......my mom and sister.  Last I checked, we all three are planning on going.  I am so excited as I have always wanted to visit Victoria and that will be close to my 1 year wedding anniversary. 

My question is this...if we come take classes, do we have to figure out a way to bring our looms or will there be looms to rent?

Thanks for your  help!

ETA:  I will be coming from Denver, CO.

I don't know if you have gotten an answer yet but I do believe there will be equipment to rent.
