Scholarships are available for attending the 2019 Midwest Weavers Conference.
Three of the scholarships include conference registration fees, room, and board. The Jack Baker
Memorial Scholarship, which honors the memory of a long‐time friend and board member of MWA, is
given to a weaver with less than five years experience. The other two all-inclusive awards will be
given to applicants who demonstrate financial need. Several scholarships that cover only the
conference registration fee will also be awarded.
To apply, submit a letter that explains the role weaving plays in your life and why you would like
to attend the Midwest Weavers' Conference. Please indicate for which of the scholarships you are
applying, and be sure to include your name, address, phone number, and email address. Previous
scholarship awardees are not eligible.
Application deadline is February 1, 2019. Your application for "Uncommon Threads"
will be accepted from now until 2/1/2019. Awardees will be notified March 1st, 2019.
Send your application letter by mail (or email) to:
