This is Squaw Valley, site of the 1960 Winter Olympics, and this is the Resort at Squaw Creek and now site of the 2013 Conference of Northern California Hand Weavesr conference. As president of the Reno Fiber Guild I was asked to attend to represent our guild. I was overwhelmed by the location and after the program presentation, by the sessions and teachers we have to choose from.
Northern California is a large region and some of ladies had a seven-hour drive which made my 90 minutes through pines and back country pale in comparison. What struck me was the passion, love of the crasft and sincerity. It was refreshing company.
We toured the rooms that would be additional workshop spaces. There are eight on the ground level and nine on the ninth floor tour and they will have views just like this one. I don't know about anyone else but I think I'm either going to have to play hooky or schedule an extra day.
I left early because I was unsure of the drive and ended up visiting with weavers, old and new friends in the lobby.
It's good, the drive home was
easy. Huge fluffy clouds, so fluffy and white.
