The ASCH conference only happens once every two years. All the weaving and spinning guilds of Southern California meet up for classes, shopping and networking. One of the best parts of the ASCH conference is getting to interact with neighboring sister guilds and getting inspired by the work that they do. At this year's conference, each guild was responsible for putting together a booth that represented their work in the theme of the conference which was "wild flowers of the sierra"
Here are the entries
