If you’ve never been, this is truly an amazing experience. The best fiber artists in the world attend this semi-annual event. It is held on alternating sessions on the west, east coasts and midwest, so comes to our neck of the woods every 4-6 years.
The Handweavers Guild of America, Inc. will present Convergence®, our international fiber arts conference, in Reno, Nevada July 6-12, 2018 at the Peppermill Resort. With more than 1,500 participants, HGA’s biennial Convergence® Conference is a multi-faceted experience with exhibitions, shopping, fashion show, tours, workshops, seminars, lectures, and more. We are excited to share with our members and fellow fiber enthusiasts all that Reno and Northern Nevada has to offer.
Nestled at the base of the magnificent Sierra Nevada Mountain Range, Reno’s dry, mild climate with more than 250 days of sunshine makes it attractive to visitors year round. The city is accessible by car, train, or the newly renovated airport – just an 8-minute drive with complimentary shuttle provided by the Peppermill Resort.
