The 2023 Conference is planned for March 16-19, 2023.

Information for the 2023 conference will be posted here as it becomes available. In the meantime, here are the past conference details to whet your kitemaking appetite!

The FWKC Committee is continuing to monitor the Coronavirus situation as the safety of our participants and staff is paramount. Any information in that regard will be posted as it becomes available.

At this time, the 2022 conference will be held as scheduled as local health agencies feel that the Omicron peak may have passed. However please be aware that all health orders and requirements in effect at the time of the conference must be followed by all participants.

Due to the uncertainty surrounding the virus, the Committee will allow any registered participant wishing to cancel to do so by Saturday, March 5, 2022 and receive a full refund of conference fees. Conference fees for cancellations received March 6 and after will not be refunded. In either case, students are and will be responsible for payment of any costs incurred by the instructors in preparing your class kits, and for any pre-ordered pins, shirts or other merchandise.

Complete details are posted below.
