Colorado Weavers Day is a conference for weavers, spinners, and dyers every two years by different guilds in the state of Colorado. Pikes Peak Weavers Guild hosted the first CWD in 2004 and again 2016. The Northern Colorado Weavers Guild is proud to host its second CWD in 2018. The mission of the conference is to encourage communication and sharing of ideas and textile accomplishments among weavers, spinners, and dyers in the state of Colorado. Guild display tables are an important part of the event, allowing guild members from around the state to demonstrate their work.
