The centerpiece of the Midwest Weavers Association is the biennial conference.  Local guilds volunteer to host these conferences, with considerable support by the MWA Board which provides financial seed money, a designated Board member mentor, website hosting, online registration support, and a set of written guidelines compiled from past conference experiences which includes sample budgets, contracts, and other important information.

If your Guild is interested in hosting future conferences, please reach out to any Board member to let us know.  You can also download the current Conference Guidelines from the Conferences menu on this site to familiarize yourself with the process.
