Welcome to Our New Blog!

Welcome to our new blog! The executive has decided that it would be nice to have a way to communicate with its members in between newsletters and to let potential members learn a little bit about us. The site will provide us a place to post news that sometimes will be too late if put in the newsletter and to keep you up to date on exhibitions you can take part in, conference updates, and of course to brag a bit about our great members.

If you choose to be a follower you will be notified when new items have been posted. You may also choose to bookmark or add this site to Favorites and then check every so often yourself to see what we are up to.

In May we held our annual conference at Olds College. Although attendance was not as high as usual, I am sure all attending would agree it was a great conference. Next year's committee is already working hard at planning the event - 2010 will be hosted by the Edmonton Weaver's Guild at Kings College.

After the conference some of our members headed down to ANWG. They set up a booth for us there and I am anxiously awaiting pictures or news on the event.

We will also have a booth at Fibre Week - June 27 to July 1 (Olds College). If you would like to learn more about us and are in the area, please come visit.
