AMB in the News:
Have you ever attended a Maker Faire? Thought they were only about electronics? Well they have so much more and this year at the Detroit Maker Faire there will be a table for MAKE A BASKET. The Detroit Maker Faire is held at The Henry Ford in Dearborn on July 30-31 from 9:30am - 6:00pm.
Plan to attend these future AMB Events:
- Annual Convention 2016: October 19-23 at Causeway Bay Hotel in Lansing - this is the correct date
- Annual Convention 2017: October 25-29 at Shanty Creek Resort in Bellaire
Want to attend convention, but are not a member? Membership is open all year, so join and come weave with us.
Did you know anyone can come to visit the convention during Public Days? There are two areas that are open to public, the vendors and exhibit room. Visit the vendors to see new supplies and pick up a kit or two. Need some inspiration? Go to the exhibit room and see the juried and sharing baskets. You can also apply for membership in the Exhibit room so you can attend next year. Public Days are Friday 10-5 and Saturday 10-6 during Convention.
The AMB would like to put together a list of teachers. This list could then be used as a resource for new beginners or guilds looking for workshop instructors. Please fill out this survey if interested in having your name included. You must be an AMB member to be included on the list. This is a list of current teachers.
The AMB is looking for instructions for beginning weavers wanting to learn to make baskets. These instructions should include photos or drawings that a beginning weaver can understand. Please do not make copies from books, as that is a violation of copyright laws. If you have any instructions that can be posted on the Resources page, please send them to the Webmaster.
Is your guild hosting an outside Workshop and would like others to know about it? Send an e-mail to the Webmaster and it can be displayed on the website.
Please find the Dayton Heritage Guild's Fall Weave brochure for the end of August 2016. We have found a lovely retreat center where classes, housing and meals are all under one roof! The setting us very nice too. We are limiting registration to the first 100. Does this sound like fun to you? Here is their brochure.
