Members Awards – CHT 2017

It was a pleasure and an honor to see the work of our fellow weavers, spinners, felters, and basketry artists at this year’s conference in Sugar Land, Texas.  The items entered into this year’s Fashion Show and Members’ Exhibit displayed remarkable artistry, craftsmanship and skill. Each piece inspires  fellow members of the CHT community to achieve our own personal best. Thank you to all who entered and congratulations to all who were honored with an award.
