Schacht Goes to Convergence


Liz Gipson and Barry Schacht off to Convergence wearing their Cricket Hats.

Liz and Barry headed out to Albuquerque to Convergence today. They aren’t just going to Convergence–they’re going in STYLE–with their super snazzy super duper Cricket Hats.

Look for Barry and Liz in the Yarn Barn and Carolina Homespun booths where they’ll be talking about and demonstrating Schacht products, or roaming the isles in the vendor Hall, with or without their Cricket Hats.

Seriously though, if you’re anywhere close to Albuquerque, don’t miss visiting the commercial displays. You can purchase day passes that will give get you into the vendor hall and some of the Convergence exhibits. Also, this year they’re having mini education classes in the vendor hall.

FYI: Convergence is the biennial conference of the Handweavers Guild of America.
