To promote weaving and all related fiber arts and to preserve the traditions of these arts.
To accomplish this goal, ANWG will award grants for activities such as lectures, seminars, workshops, research projects, retreats, etc. Up to five US$600 grants will be awarded for use between January 2022 and June 2023. These grants are made possible because two Annual Membership Meetings were held electronically during the time of the pandemic saving the administrative expenses that would have been incurred.
Grants are available to any guild or study group within a guild that is a member in good standing with ANWG (current in their dues). Each application must be signed by the Guild President and, if appropriate, the Chair of the project/event. Each guild is allowed one application.
The application must be received electronically by November 1, 2021 and include a detailed budget of estimated income and expenses. Email the signed, completed application as a word.doc to 2VP@northwestweavers.org. Applications received after November 1 will not be considered.
Prior successful applications have been well-thought out and explained using the application form and budget provided. Applications will be numbered as received before being redacted and reviewed by the ANWG Board grant committee. These blind evaluations will be compiled and the final decision made by the grant committee. Grant recipients will be announced on the website, and in the January 2022 ANWG newsletter.
Keeping in mind the stated Goal, please complete the attached Word.doc application and budget detailing your project/event.
The recipient of each grant will provide a project/event report including photos to the ANWG Board within 60 days of completion for publication in the newsletter. Email the report to: firstname.lastname@example.org
