Can you post a link to the MAFA 2017 Workshop Weekend site at the top of this thread?

The conference site isn't live yet so I've posted the MAFA URL until it is. It should be ready by later this summer.

Registration is open to everyone. The conference price doesn't get any better--and that's because MAFA's leadership team is composed entirely of volunteers. How can you beat a 2 1/2 day workshop with a world-class instructor, room and board for three days/nights and lots of other activities? You can't!

Registered this morning, Feb.1, for Acadian weaves. Got my first choice, so I'm happy.

Possibly a mug rug, if Frances Irwin Handweavers in Northern New Jersey is successful with their efforts! Images from our February guild meeting today:

Here are some snaps from MAFA 2015 to whet your appetite!

The Marketplace!

Learning new things and meeting great instructors.

Open studio night, and just hanging out.

The highly anticipated week has arrived! Three days to meet deadlines, and then leaving for Millersville after work on Wednesday.

I am bringing looms, tools, extra tools (in case someone forgot theirs), bobbin winder, pillow, blanket, sweater, salty snacks, beverages, Inky and ?

What are you bringing?

My loom is warped and samples are in their sleeves. Bringing extra bobbins, winder, etc. a sweater? Really? We are supposed to be in a heat wave that weekend. But - totally get it - airconditioning may be an issue.

The air conditioning held up well last year, when it was also hot and muggy. The dorms this year are new, and I'm optimistic that all will function perfectly.

Sad to report the vendor area closed at 8 tonight. I managed to make a few purchases right at the end of the evening.
