I received this e-mail concerning the upcoming NEWS award shows and thought I should share. Perhaps someone from NOBO would like to sponsor an award to honor a loved one?
Also, please start thinking of items you may want to enter in one of the NEWS award shows. It would be wonderful if weavers from NOBO could gain some name recognition in the New England area. There’s still plenty of time!
The New England Weaving Seminar is fast approaching. As the Awards Chair again this year I am writing to request award donations for the NEWS 2011 Fashion Show and also the Gallery Show from all the guilds. This is a great way to get additional publicity for the guilds, to honor a guild member, as an effective manner of encouraging a certain type of weaving and finally to show your support for all the fine handweavers that we have in New England. I am coordinating the awards for both the Gallery Show and the Fashion Show. If you would like to donate an award for one or both exhibits, please let me know as soon as possible so we can add your award to the NEWS website; http://www.newenglandweaversseminar.com. The Deadline for awards is June 1, 2011.
Please indicate which show you would like the award to be given at, the name of the award, prize amount, and also specific, detailed criteria that you would like the judges to consider for your award donations. If the award is in memory or in honor of someone please include a photo (if possible) and paragraph about them. I like to give this to recipient of the award. My address is below.
I look forward to hearing from you.
