Georgia Basketry Association
We are very pleased that the 2022 Georgia Basketry Convention is about to happen! We will be at the Hilton in Marietta from Friday, February 4th until Sunday, February 6th. We have lots of first-time attendees and that is very exciting for us.
These are still uncertain times and we want to remind you that if you are feeling unwell, please get tested before you arrive. While masks are not mandated in Georgia, wearing one is suggested—particularly for those who are immuno-compromised.
We also want to remind you that, if you have been to a GBA convention before and have a name-tag holder, please bring it along. You will be provided with a current name tag. First-time attendees will be provided with a holder along with their tag.
Also, please remember to bring a small woven ornament for our tree, raffle items and your raffle labels as well as a door prize—you bring one, you take one of your choosing.
We’ll be looking for volunteers on Friday for filling goodie bags and on Friday and Saturday for help with the raffle.
Stay healthy and we’ll see you very soon!
Betty Wong and Karen Gramenz
