At the last meeting, the membership of NOBO voted unanimously to join NEWS (New England Weavers’ Seminar). This volunteer organization of weaving guilds from New England gathers together to host an action packed conference every 2 years to promote, what else, weaving and fiber related arts with courses, exhibits and speakers. The next NEWS will take place July 7-12, 2011 at Smith College.
With the planning process underway, NOBO will send 2 representatives to participate in planning this event. NOBO’s designated task during the conference will be to manage the installation of Guild Shows. NOBO members will also have the option of submitting pieces in any of the juried shows to be displayed during NEWS.
Congratulations, NOBO on stepping forward to support the mission of NEWS and thank you, reps Joan and Kathie for volunteering to represent NOBO.
