Call for presentation proposals at the Weaving History Conference

The guild received the following letter from Marina Loew, Curator, Thousand Islands Arts Center, Home of the Handweaving Museum. See the contact information at the end.

Hello weaving friends!

I wanted to share with your guild that the Handweaving Museum and Arts Center (Clayton, NY) is currently seeking presentation proposals for this year’s 27th Annual Weaving History Conference (WHC)! The WHC will be held virtually October 24-26, and the deadline for proposals is July 29th. Proposal extensions are possible – just let me know and we will work it out!

Last year’s conference was an incredible success – not only did we have more than three times the amount of attendees over previous years, but we also gained new members and friends; increased our reach; and attracted an international audience. Not to mention the fabulous lineup of presenters and the huge amount of accolades they all received!

Anyone interested in the conference or in submitting a proposal should check out our website at:
