Crossing Borders Crossing Threads
The 2013 conference theme is "Crossing Borders, Crossing Threads." It is an appropriate theme for a weaving conference at Western Washington University, so near the Canadian border in Bellingham. It is a theme that honors the influences of the many cultures whose people have crossed borders and brought their weaving traditions with them. The theme also celebrates the influences of woven borders and traditional cultures on design and color in our modern world.
