ANWG 2017

A big thank you to the organizers of the ANWG 2017 conference in Victoria BC.  The planning and hard work certainly was evident as a first class conference was put on for over 500 delegates.
Deep Cove Weavers and Spinners Guild took on the task of organizing the tea-towel exchange.  It was a great job to have as we not only got to see and touch all the entries, but most importantly meet some of the talented delegates.

Participation was great, we exchanged about 140 tea towels.  All as different as the people who created them.   
We also had time to attend great workshops, visit the colourful Market Hall to shop from an array of vendors and admire the Guild booths.  Saturday evening we attended the most amazing 'Fashion Show', enjoying the creations of the many talented delegates.  Sunday evening was a time for socializing at the banquet and attending the key-note address by Charlotte Kwan of the Maiwa Foundation.
We are definitely looking forward to the ANWG 2019 conference being held in Prince George BC.    Hope to see some of you there ...... Enjoy the rest of your summer.
