Registration is open and early reports say some of the workshops/seminars are beginning to fill. If there is something of particular interest, it would be a good idea to register sooner, rather than later!
We have some really interesting offerings in our schedule. Check out the website for details.
Just to whet your appetite, here are a few selected seminars:
Syne Mitchell will be talking about adding electronics to textiles
Yoriko Oki will address opening an Etsy shop
Sarah Wroot has done research into historic textiles
Dr. Susan Pavel will encourage discussion with her seminar Weaving Words
Elizabeth Schatz will discuss Nalbinding
Leola Witt-McNie designs with intention
Heide Kraus will talk all about cashmere
Sue Perron looks at ceinture fleche'
Janet Dawson shares hints and tips about painless back to front warping
This is just a taste of the seminars!
We have scheduled some seminars twice because that gives people more flexibility in choosing what to take when.
We have several seminars that are two-parters. If a seminar description says part I or part II you will sign up for both parts, which equal two seminars.
Registrations includes three time slots for seminars.
Seminars will take place at the Coast Inn of the North, the Courtyard Marriott, the public library (all of the seminars with Bob Keates will take place in the library all purpose room - due to the library open hours, the times are different for these), the art gallery, and at the Civic Centre.
All facilities are within a two block walk, surrounding the plaza. All buildings are accessible and have air conditioning.
