What's New at NBO
All of us at NBO are excited as our 2019 Conference on the campus of Western Kentucky University is less than one year away. This Over/Under contains all the links you need to access Conference Information and Workshop Descriptions, and those all-important Scholarship Opportunities open to everyone. Now is a good time to read up and decide which workshop most intrigues and decide which workshop interests you most as registration opens for NBO members on September 17th. This promises to be our most exciting conference yet!
If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area or plan to be here in mid September the Randall Museum is hosting Celebrating Making! Three Days with the Parker Family: 4 Generations of Native California Basket Makers. This one-of-a-kind event takes place September 14, 15 & 16. You can read more about it below. Visit the Randall Museum to learn more. I hope you have a chance to participate in some of the weekend’s activities and be sure to include the kids!
Our Featured Guild's Event for August is the Stateline Friends Weaving Retreat. Their much-anticipated event takes place in April of 2019 with over 400 people participating in this annual event. The class descriptions will be available beginning on September 17, 2018.
Now is a wonderful time to join NBO if you’re not already a member. You’ll save $50 off the conference registration price and begin receiving our magazine. It’s filled with a variety of interesting articles about basket makers, articles to inspire your creativity and basketry events taking place around the country plus so much more.
Fall is on the way so go out and enjoy those last days of summer!
