The Northeast Basketmakers Guild, NBG, conducts several events each year for our members. You must be a member to participate.
Our major events are:
The Spring Gathering is a 3-day basket making event, featuring classes covering all styles of basket weaving using a variety of materials. Teachers from across the country join us for a fun weekend of baskets, weaving, and friends.
The NBG Annual Meeting for members is held on Saturday evening of The Gathering weekend.
The Summer Retreat is a one-day mid-summer event with workshops, luncheon, tailgate sales, Traveling Basket, and our annual auction.
The Fall Retreat is a one-day fall event with workshops.
Workshops are held by various studios throughout the year. In some local areas, Weaving Days are randomly held for NBG basket weavers to gather and share their knowledge and friendship. Local members initiate these events.
