"Convergence is a 7-day multi-faceted fiber art experience with exhibitions, shopping, fashion show, tours, workshops, seminars, lectures, and more. Presented biennially in a different city each year, the conference is a convergence of the world's leading fiber art instructors, weaving loom manufacturers, fiber art suppliers, award-winning works of fiber art, students and fiber art enthusiasts. Weavers, spinners, dyers, and even general arts supporters will find something of interest."  (from website)
