Somebody knew what they were doing when they named the event “Confluence”! So many wonderful fiber arts things to do this weekend (this does not profess to be an exhaustive list-just what I’m aware of and had time to look up-feel free to add more):
First off-If you need an SR Harris fix, some of us are headed up there on Friday-arriving about 9:30 and then we’ll have lunch someplace. Call if you’d like to carpool-952-201-3863.
Katherine Tilton is in town for Confluence-this is from her email, “I’ll be showing my latest work – some great new pieces! – at the Trunk Show this Friday night, 6-10PM. See hotel location info below. There will also be 2 movies, the Vendor Fair and a DIY festival happening at the same time so it should be fun.
I am in charge of the Vendor Fair which is free and open to the public Thursday evening, 6-8PM, Friday, 8:30AM-2PM & 6-10PM (Trunk Show time too!), Saturday, 8:30AM-5PM & Sunday, 8:30AM-1030AM. There are amazingly beautiful textiles from Japan, Mexico, Uzbekistan, Southeast Asia, Kyrgyzstan, India and the US available plus many tools, yarns and accoutrements for textile makers and lovers.
All this is happening at the:
Radisson University Hotel
615 Washington Avenue
Minneapolis, Minnesota 55414
