Missouri Basketweavers Guild Convention

19th Annual Convention
August 5-8, 2010
Holiday Inn/Southwest, Viking Conference Center
St. Louis, Missouri 63127

I am posting this information for a couple of reasons:
  1. I am a member of the Missouri Basketweavers Guild and want to support it.
  2. I am on this years convention planning committee
  3. I will be vending this year (and maybe taking a class if I can swing it)
  4. I designed the above logo!
So join us August, 5-8, 2010 in St. Louis for “Weaving MO Madness”.  Be sure to mark the dates on your calendar.  You don’t want to miss this great weaving event in Missouri. The convention will be held at the Holiday Inn Viking Center at Lindbergh and Watson Road in St. Louis.  Please contact the hotel for reservations by calling (314) 821-6600 or 1 (800) 682-6338 and identify yourself as part of the MBG Convention to obtain the special rate of $84.00 per night.

The convention brochure will be mailed to MBG members early March.

You must be a member to attend the convention, but that is easy enough and you can find membership information here. But, if you just want to shop with the vendors anyone can do that, so be sure to stop by to see me.

I will post more as the convention approaches.


  1. Oh a girl can dream. It's been years since I've been to the MO convention in St. Louis, back when we lived in Kansas. My girlfriends would make a road trip of it. I'll be anxious to see the brochure and hopefully some familiar faces teaching.
    Thanks for the info,

  2. Oh wow! I love the logo this year, congrats for being the one to design it!

  3. Thanks for the compliments. I was happy with the way the logo turned out even though it stressed me out while I was working on it. When I was asked to make a logo with a basket that looked like a crazy mess I was like, "How am I supposed to do that?" But like with any project, once you get started it all works out.


  4. I like the logo. If I made a basket, that is probably what it would look like - a crazy mess. LOL
