I am very excited to announce that SAORI Salt Spring will be hosting the

2012 International SAORI Weaving Conference ~ SAORI on Salt Spring

This conference is being co-sponsored by Saorinomori / Sakaiseikisangyco Co. Ltd. of Japan and the US-Canada Association of SAORI Weaving and will be held on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, Canada (map).

Kenzo Jo and others from Japan will be attending and presenting some of the workshops. Studio owners and weavers from across North America will also be attending and presenting workshops and we are hoping that you can come too.


September 21, 22 & 23 – will be the main conference featuring an exhibit, a fashion show, workshops, a chance to showcase your SAORI weaving and learn from each other through sharing ideas and inspiration.

September 24-30 – will be post conference workshops featuring day-long workshops on SAORI weaving, designing clothing and more

Details are being worked on and more information will be posted as it is available.

Salt Spring Island is beautiful in the fall, the Salt Spring Market is on and there is much to do and to see.

Happy Weaving,

    Hi Terri,

    Just read that you are hosting a SAORI Conference, that is exciting. I will keep myself posted about what is happening. Just noticing that you do not have Knotty Threads Studio and Local Artisans Gallery on your Fibre links, do you know my website? Knotty Threads is on that site. Since I am a local weaver and sell local hand spun yarns it might be relevant to your readers to know about us! Presently Mary Paddon and Toni Green( who learned on the Saori loom at Wind Flower Moon) are weaving in this space as well.
