Is the list of instructors posted yet?

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN

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!

What's in your tote bag?

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

I am ready!

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.

Air conditioning at Millersville U

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.

Correction...

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