​The Spring 2018 Iowa Federation meeting will be Hosted by the Craft Guild of Iowa City at the Johnson County Fairgrounds, Building C, in Iowa City, Saturday, April 14 (which is NOT Easter, Passover, Ramadan, or Ply Away, so we hope there is space on your calendar to attend what is sure to be an enjoyable meeting.)  Our speaker will be Joan Ruane, an accomplished spinner and weaver, speaking in the morning on growing and processing cotton, and in the afternoon on hemp. Joan had an article in the Summer 2017 issue of Spin Off and has many videos to her credit.

Vendors are invited to attend. 


Be watching this space for a meeting schedule and more details after the New Year.
