Updates from Tina your GW20 Chairperson

  Weaving...for the "love" of it!!  

It's time to start planning for a fun four days of weaving, friends, and fellowship.  Make your hotel reservations early!! Remember, the hotel has blocked off a certain number of rooms for us and this also keeps YOUR costs for the event down.  We need to fill up these rooms or possibly face costs increases.  If you need a roommate, please reach out to Tina Plageman.  

Rooms are two DOUBLE beds or one KING.

Below you will find the reservation link you can use to make online reservations.

Individuals may call the reservation system at 866-329-1758 and ask for the "Guilders Weave" group block.
