New England Weavers' Seminar: 2021 Conference
NEWS 2021 is scheduled for
July 13-18, 2021
In response to the COVID 19 pandemic, the NEWS Board of Trustees has decided to postpone the planned 2021 in-person NEWS conference until 2023. The contracted instructors have been notified of this delay, and most have been amenable to making their workshops available at the later date. In the meantime, in order to maintain our network of fiber aficionados, NEWS will sponsor a virtual conference mid-July of 2021. The virtual conference will be streamlined, focusing on presentation of speakers and/or studio tours rather than workshops, an approach recommended by the majority of our survey respondents. Participants in the virtual conference will be charged only a minimal registration fee. In addition, a photo gallery of woven items, organized by member guilds, will be made available for online viewing. More specific information will be forthcoming, once our program directors have been able to hammer out the details. Stay tuned!
