Join the TBWA!


Membership is open to anyone interested in basket weaving!

Your Individual or Shared Membership with the Texas Basket Weavers Association gives you access to our membership directory and newsletter plus the ability to register to attend our annual conference held in January. Local, national and even international guest instructors assist us in achieving our mission by offering classes for all skill levels at our annual conference and other events throughout the year.

  • Our “Lone Star Twinings newsletter provides useful tips, interesting articles on weaving, volunteer weaving events around Texas, news from the local Guilds, and other nifty resources.
  • Our annual conference is filled with basket weaving classes, baskets ideas, and networking with other basket weavers.

Black and white printed editions of the Lone Star Twinings newsletter are mailed to members for an additional yearly fee of $15, which must be paid at the same time as the annual membership fee (select the $45 Printed Membership option).

Digital editions of the Lone Star Twinings are free with all memberships (select the $30 Digital Membership option).

Shared memberships are required to mail in an application, residence validation, and payment to our membership director. Printable applications are available by clicking on the image of the membership application or going here.

Membership is required to attend the annual conference and other TBWA events.

TBWA Membership year runs May 1 through April 30 and dues are not prorated.

Dues must be paid before May 31 to prevent your account from being deleted and guarantee your name to appear in the directory.

New Individual Memberships or renewal of an Individual Membership is now available online using one of our two forms below. Select which method throughout the year you would like to receive your copy of our Lone Star Twinings Newsletter, follow the prompts, then pay online during checkout. You will be sent back to our site to set up your username and password for your membership account.
