Federation Day 2018 – Connecting Threads

Our Federation Day 2018, Connecting Threads, will be held on Saturday, February 24, 2018 from 9-4:30 at the Radisson North Phoenix (soon to be a Hilton Doubletree Hotel).

This year, we will feature both half-day and full day classes on a variety of fiber arts and a wonderful soup and salad luncheon, with keynote speaker Rosalie Neilson. We also have a great line-up of vendors for unique fiber shopping. There will be guild booths where guilds can display and sell their work.

Check with your Federation Guild Director or your Guild President to get more details and registration information. We expect both the classes and the luncheon to fill quickly, so be sure to get your registration in early. Registration opens mid to late October, with a deadline of postmark by January 7, received by 1/10/2017.

Rooms at a group discount will be available at the hotel for those wishing to stay over.

Stay tuned for more information soon!

Federation Teacher Registry – Call for Educators

The Arizona Federation of Weavers and Spinners wishes to assemble a catalog of Arizona workshop teachers and those who do guild programs.

There are people in the State, many are members of area guilds, who teach fiber related subjects and/or give guild programs. If you are one of the aforementioned people we would like your resume, the type of workshops you teach and the subject of programs so we can make them available to the Arizona fiber guilds. If you know someone please pass this information to them.

This is an opportunity to further a teaching career or avocation as well as become part of a group who wishes to contribute to the education of Arizona’s fiber enthusiasts.
