CNCH 2025  “Bound by Thread – Boundless Creativity”

Asilomar on Monterey Bay The soul-renewing beachfront conference grounds!

Weaving, Spinning, Dying, Basketry, Kumihimo with 13 fabulous, World-Renowned Instructors!

For our two-and-a-half day workshop offerings, we have gathered an amazing cast of Instructors and we have asked them to provide us with unique offerings. They’ve all come through for us on that account!

Here’s a sneak peek:

If you’re a fan of kumihimo on the marudai, who’ve looked at some braids and said, “how the heck did they do that?” you’ll get the answers from our world-renowned instructor.  Meanwhile, if you want to enter the world of basketmaking, or just want to make a beautiful basket that will become an heirloom, we’re offering that in 2025. If natural dyeing is of interest, we have snagged the premier west coast mushroom dyeing teacher. Or, join a leading textile artist for a roundup of fiber-reactive techniques!  Spinners: You can spin the planet! Or reach for the rainbow! And for all of you weavers out there, we are running the whole gamut for you, from wool transparent tapestry, to a special twist on rug weaving, to ultra high-fashion fabric design, to weft Ikat, and have you ever heard of a metaweave? We’ve got that too!

There’s something for everyone, including a beginner or refresher floor loom workshop, and another workshop where we bring the specialized looms to you! Plus, for at least 2 of our workshops, rigid heddle looms will be an option.

CNCH 2024 "Enduring Fiber Roots"

Rohnert Park, Santa Rosa, CA

The 71st annual Conference of Northern California Handweavers (CNCH) in beautiful Sonoma County, CA. Our conference theme this year is Enduring Fiber Roots, inspired by the area’s majestic Redwood trees. The area is also home to acres of vineyards, rugged coastlines, and numerous dairy ranches. They chose the Redwood tree to honor the ancient and magnificent symbol of our state, whose roots support us. CNCH 2024 will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, Sonoma Wine Country. Wonderful workshops, vendors, exhibitions, fundraising, and fun celebrating weaving, and advancing the traditions of fiber.
