Welcome to NwRSA!
Our annual conference brings NwRSA members and associate members together from the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Activities include classes, a keynote speaker, competitions, fashion show, door prizes, camaraderie, and a chance to shop for what is new in fibers from a wide range of vendors.
