Florida Tropical Weavers’ Guild 2015 Conference


The conference is behind us now, so it’s time to take a look back and reflect.  Here are some gathered images to jar a memory or inspire you to create a new one next year.  The Vendor area looked full, which is always nice.  The guild display tables were all very impressive, so much talent, very inspiring.  There was a stellar line-up of Instructors/workshops, including: Norma Bromley/Got Cashmere, Diane Click/Quigley – A Four-Tie Unit Weave, Karan Donde/Handwoven Lace Techniques, Don Ferris/Create a Classic Nantucket Basket, Tom Knisley/Boundweave Rug – A Weft-Face Twill, Dan Hoffman/Wood Turning, Peggy Ward/Creating a Bead Embroidered NecklaceTommye McClure Scanlin/Tapestry: Design it – Weave it!Laverne Waddington/Andean Pebble Weave On A Backstrap LoomSara Norine James/Fiber University, and Kathrin Weber/Not Your Grandma’s Dye-Pot.
