2019 KAWS Conference
Kansas Alliance of Weavers and Spinners
October 11-12, 2019
Lyon County Historical Center
711 Commercial Street, Emporia, KS
This year, we are hosting a fun-filled, less structured KAWS conference. A few of the activities we will address are upcycling, weaving, and a spin-in. In addition, there will be a “cakewalk” that includes fiber prizes, many vendors, and a hanging fashion show. We are honored to have Melinda Chiroy as the keynote speaker.
Please bring a few extra materials for your fiber pleasure: a small bag of thrums/left over yarns, a few favorite shank buttons, scissors, paint/dye apron, and a tapestry needle. These materials may be used in the following activities/classes:
- Stitching Penny “Rugs”
- Crafting Yarn Birds
- Creating Scissor Fobs
- Pin Loom Weaving
- Painting Cheater’s Batik
- Dye Transfer Silk Scarf (This is the only class that requires a fee of $5.00 and
5 vintage 100% silk neckties.)
This is just a sampling of the many exciting activities we have planned!
