Workshop Weekend Registration Packages. Your registration fee of $560 includes tuition for your 16-hour workshop, your lodging, and all meals from Thursday evening through Sunday lunch. Lodging will be in West Village Dormitory, which is close to the Dining Hall and the Student Memorial Center. All rooms are non-smoking.

Materials fees for workshops are totally separate and payable  to the instructor on the first day of class. Please have exact change or checks made out to the instructor.

Commuters, i.e., those attending classes but not staying on campus, will be charged $360 for their workshop and other conference events. Meals are not included, but may be purchased in the Dining Hall on an individual meal basis.

Non-participating Attendees, i.e., those not attending workshops, such as spouses, can be accommodated for a fee of $240. This will provide them with lodging and all the conference meals, as well as attendance at the non-workshop events of the conference. Note, all attendees must be over 18.

Option to Stay Overnight. Guild members not taking classes, but who don’t want to drive home after a day of fiber activities may register for Friday and/or Saturday night stays for a cost of $55 per night. No meals are included with this option, but they may be purchased individually for cash at the Dining Hall.

After April 1, 2019, you will forfeit the entire amount unless there are extenuating circumstances, in which case, you must provide documentation to the registrar at
