The Yadkin Cultural Arts Center provides an unique venue for this event, nestled in a small Southern town in North Carolina’s Yadkin Valley. It can host 100 participants. The center houses the Welborn Gallery, where the Tapestry Weavers’ South annual exhibition, Filament, will be on display. While visiting the area, participants and accompanied partners and companions can explore local wineries, take an easy drive to the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway, do a kayaking outing on the Yadkin River or a hike across the rock face summit of Stone Mountain. Nearby Elkin, North Carolina offers golfing opportunities and additional accommodations.
The Fiber Room and Cultural Center are located approximately 1 hour from Charlotte-Douglas International and 1 hour 45 minutes from Raleigh-Durham International Airports. Ample parking and local campgrounds provide other options for road trippers and campers alike, or for $62 a night, the staff at the local Days Inn will welcome you to their hotel.
