Guild Exhibits and Past Conferences

Jean and I have had many questions about the Guild Exhibit for Northern Wefts 2011. Eve Lindsey our Guild Exhibit Chairman has prepared the Entry form and Judging criteria for this exhibit it can be downloaded from the Midwestweavers.org website soon
Our theme is:
Aurora Borealis: Northern Lights-Ever Changing
Guild/Study Group Exhibit
"The Northern Lights,
Ever changing,

Always in motion,

A whisper of color,

Never the same."


The booths will be 9 feet by 9 feet with a 6 foot table, we are hoping to have some kind of draping between the booths but that has not worked out yet.

The members of the Buellwood Guild are getting excited about this conference.

Our last guild meeting we actually practiced preparing for our Guild Exhibit. That means we did a trial run of something we will be using to enhance our exhibit booth. The fact that our small guild is even doing a booth is amazing , I think 8 showed up for our Monday meeting, But we are going to give it our best effort.

I have some pictures from Heartland 2009 that I can share with you. This might help guilds that do not know where to start, get some ideas.

Shuttlecraft Guild Exhibit 2009



As you can see a lot of thought went into these exhibits - there were 16 guilds represented in 2009. The awards were cash prices for First place, Second place, Third place and a Viewers choice award. These are just samples and not the winning Guilds.

We hope you will find our theme Aurora Borealis inspiring and put together a Guild Booth for our Conference. Deadline to enter is May 1, 2011
