There is no scheduled program this month.  Bring all those projects for show and tell that you completed while being snowed in!

Midwest Weavers Conference is in Grinnell this summer.  If you haven’t checked out their website, I suggest you do.  Several members of our guild have often attended these wonderful conferences.  Go to www.midwestweavers.org for information and to register for the conference, which includes seminars that fill three half-day time slots.  You may choose one full-day seminar plus one half-day seminar or three half-day seminars.  You must be a member of Midwest Weavers Association to attend, but it’s easy to join by filling in the appropriate fields on the registration form.  Registration ends April 19.
