2012 Oakland

CNCH 2012 conference at Oakland Convention Center

Tradition / Innovation

Welcome to CNCH 2012, the 60th annual conference of the Conference of Northern California Handweavers.  The dates are May 18-20, 2012  and the location is the Oakland Convention Center.

Conference Theme is Tradition/Innovation

Our theme celebrates the traditions our crafts are built on and the innovations that fiber artisans are exploring. What brings us together is the tradition of craft that we enjoy, but it is what we make of that tradition that is the innovation. Our galleries and fashion show provide us with a showcase for our own innovation. We celebrate new fibers, and make use of new techniques including computer software that allows us to take our textile arts to new and exciting levels.
