NCBA Convention 2005:
The Best Weaving and The Best Weavers

Congratulations to Judy Wobbleton and Lyn Siler for coordinating an exciting, eventful, and smooth-running convention. These charter members still know how to get things done! We are fortunate that Judy and Lyn, who surely have done their share of volunteering since NCBA's inception, chose to observe the organization's twentieth year by remembering NCBA's past and looking to its future. Thanks, Lyn and Judy.
