YARN WINDING

The Contemporary Handweavers of Houston will be back this year – winding your yarn so you can cast on your purchases immediately! Look for their booth in the front of the vendor hall.


And here is a map of the venue, to help you find your way. We’re in the arena this year, across the hall from the Conference Center where we were last year. We recommend that you enter the Berry Center parking lot from Barker Cypress at the traffic light, and walk in through ENTRANCE 2. If the parking lot is full, you can also circle around to the back of the building and use Entrance 3.
