Michigan League of Handweavers Conference, 2011

This is the first year I have had the opportunity to stay for the weekend at the MLH Conference and take seminars.  Two years ago I helped set up the Guild Exhibit for the Greater Lansing Weavers Guild and had such a great day I dragged my husband down to see everything that was going on the Saturday but I knew I had to come back for overnight.

This year our guild (Greater Lansing Weavers Guild) was inn charge of setting up the Fiberart and Functional Exhibits.  We were given classrooms instead of actual gallery space but I think we got everything hung and laid out the best we could.  Here's some photos from the exhibits:
