The Prince George Fibre Arts Guild is excited to welcome Northwest weavers, and all fibre-enthusiasts, to join us in PrinceGeorge for the ‘Confluences: the ANWG Conference’ happening June 11-16th, 2019!
Our theme, Confluences, is inspired by how weaving, spinning, knitting merge together to create unique and beautiful textiles. Moreover, Prince George (PG) is located at the confluence of the Fraser River and the Nechako River, the confluence of Highway 97 and Highway 16, and embraces the confluences of many cultures and traditions.
While PG may seem far, far away, we can promise you that it’s worth the trip. Whether you decide to drive here (a scenic drive 600 miles, or 960km, up through the Interior of BC), jump onto an airplane to arrive at our International Airport, or take a detour through Jasper and hop on a train – you are guaranteed to be stunned by our mountains, lakes and forests. (We have LOADS of things to do here, check out www.tourismpg.com to learn about a few of them!)
We had five of our guild members attend Treadle Lightly, in Victoria, BC, over the Canada Day long weekend, and we came back more energized than ever to get to work for 2019. It was a fantastic conference, and we learned so much from all the hard work that the Victoria Handweavers and Spinners Guild put into the conference.
Our website for the 2019 ANWG Conference will be up and running by the end of the summer, and found at: www.anwgconference2019.com. Want to keep up to date with what we’re planning along the way? We’ve put together a mailing list, just email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
