NCBA Convention Brochure Has Arrived!

It's finally here! The 2010 North Carolina Basketmakers Association Convention Brochure has arrived! I am so excited - aren't you? Almost 200 beautiful baskets all for the weaving...and celebrating! The theme is "Celebrating Baskets!" That is the cover of the brochure, at left.
Convention Brochure has been posted online.

Since this year NCBA has a new online system, members are already entering their class choices - no waiting for a deadline! So wonderful. Thanks very much to Jim D'Errico for getting this new system up and running for NCBA! Jim deserves a very hearty congratulations, i am sure this was a big job. Jim's wife, Andria, is the Class Assignments Chair, and they have been working together to fulfill their vision of how class assignments should be - for over a year now. So cool.

I can't wait to see you all at convention, it is so much fun every year. This year i am teaching three classes, and i hope to soon tell you about them. I am going to list them in this space, on my blog, with photos and descriptions. As i was about to do so, it occurred to me that there are probably other teachers who would like to tell you more about the classes they will be teaching. So i am making this offer: if you are a teacher, teaching at NCBA this year, i will publish your class information in this blog. For details, please email me.

I see the conference is in March. Where is it to be held? Can you give more details about this in your blog?

Pam,

I couldn't find the PDF for the cataloge anywhere on the website this year. Is it only available online to see if you are a member? I'd like to blog about this, but not if people can't see the array of classes offered.

Hi Cathryn,
sorry, the brochure is not up online yet. I still have to get it from the printer in pdf. The hard copy has been mailed to all NCBA members. I will post the pdf as soon as i get it, probably next week. thanks for asking!
