We can't believe the Weavin' In Kerrville conference has been over for a week. The memories were so great!
Here's a peek at some of the work from students in Jill Robinson's classes. Looks like everyone had a fabulous time!
We came - We saw - We WOVE!!!
Today is the LAST day of Weavin In Kerrville and your last chance to buy those supplies ( you know you'll want in the next few months) from our fabulous vendors.
The conference ends at NOON then it's g'bye until we see you again in DALLAS in 2019!
Some of our members are sharing pics of their handywork from yesterday's classes! 🤗

Stars of Weaving Competition
and The Exhibition
Stars of Weaving
Share your baskets with your fellow weavers in either a juried or non-juried exhibit!
5 Juried Categories (each competing for $50 cash prizes):
- Art/Unusual Piece
- New Weaver (less than 2 years)
One entry from the above categories (except Professional) could win even more $$ and prizes with the Viewer’s Choice Award!
COMPETITION UPDATE! This year, winners of the juried categories will receive $50 CASH, rather than a $50 voucher for Conference Vendors, as in prior years. That means you’ll have more money to spend on the Silent Auction, Opportunity Drawing tickets, dinner, supplies or gift items from a Vendor or at Marketplace … or on whatever you like!
Non-competitive Category (no prize money): The Exhibition
Want to show off your basketry skills but don’t want to enter the Stars of Weaving? The Exhibition is just the place for you! Bring your non-competing items to display during the conference.
It’s easy to enter the Stars of Weaving Competition or The Exhibition and FUN to show off your basketry skills!
