I.O.L.I. Annual Lace Convention
Sunday, June 25 to Friday, June 30, 2023 | Reno, Nevada
Co-hosted with the Gold Country Lacemakers
Gold Country Lacemakers and I.O.L.I. invite you to join us in June 2023 in Sparks, Nevada, at The Nugget Hotel and Casino for the Annual Convention of the International Organization of Lace, Inc.
We think we have pulled together another winning week . . . In addition to our “not-to-be-missed” convention items, such as shopping for that “have to have” item in the Vending Hall, our annual Tat Off, and our special banquet featuring guest speaker Garrett Barmore, we are excited to bring you a selection of 22 teachers—both domestic and international—offering over 45 classes from which to choose. And, remember to enter the contest and bring your items to show off in the display room!
This year’s theme is “Memories” – remembering all of those friends, family and teachers who have helped us along the way instructing us in our fiber arts journey. We are asking for items made by our beloved fiber arts ‘teachers’ along with a short bio and, hopefully, a photograph.
Registration opens February 15, 2023 . . .See you there!
