A word about the Weaving History Conference...

The conference is held at the new 1000 Islands Harbor Hotel overlooking the beautiful St. Lawrence River in the historic village of Clayton, NY- just blocks from the Thousand Islands Arts Center's Handweaving Museum.

In order to celebrate, promote and share academic work in the subject of handweaving, the Historic Manuscripts Conference was founded. The name was changed to the Weaving History Conference to reflect the expansion of the subject of the conference to contain not just academic weaving presentations, but information on all fiber arts. Today the WHC is entering its impressive 23rd consecutive year! Please join us in 2017 as we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Thousand Islands Arts Center~ Home of the Handweaving Museum. 

Thank You to our generous 2017 Weaving History Conference Sponsors for helping us continue to share and preserve our knowledge and research on the special tradition of handweaving:
