Weavers, spinners, felters, and more will meet for the Southeast Fiber Forum in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, the first weekend of April. While the 2013 conference host, Piedmont Fiber Guild, is based in North Carolina, the guilds and individuals that participate in the Southeast Fiber Forum Association are located in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. With thirteen different fiber arts instructors, including keynote speaker Jason Collingwood, the hardest part for participants will be in choosing only one two and a half day workshop! Learn more about member guilds and instructors on the conference blog, Facebook page, and Ravelry group.
