Field to Fiber – Modesto in 2016

We’re back!!!! and we’re nuts about Modesto.

Field to Fiber is the theme for the gathering of one and all.
On Friday evening, April 8, we’ll am‘ass’ in Harvest Hall.

Gathering strength from food and drink you can wander through       the aisles. Fiber treasures for your shopping bags are sure to make you smile.

Then on to cl‘ass’es taught be teachers from all over the USA.
3 hours, 6 hours, or a day and a half…many ways for you to play.

Spin yarns, make baskets, weave and design, pop fiber in a dyepot.
Learning all this from the masters, is much richer than “self-taught.”

Fashions crafted by members will be featured on Saturday night.
Come along, enjoy a snack, the McHenry Museum will be the site.

It will be an evening unsurp‘ass’ed, it’s our guarantee.
All this and more is yours to have for just a modest fee.

So put the dates of April 8 through 10 in your date book.
For more details go to and have a closer look.

Teachers, classes, hotel deals, and a drafted schedule for you to see. CNCH 2016 is the place for you to be.

Area 2 guilds are your hosts this year, we’ve got lots of fun in store. An affordable conference with grandeous teachers, you just can’t ask for more.

This is the end of my attempt to bring this to you in rhyme.
I am just an ‘ass’piring poet and ballads are a novel pastime.
