We are looking forward to our first regular meeting after a few months of summer events such as a guild picnic,  community demos and more.

We will meet on Saturday October 3rd at 11am as usual.   However,  the large room we normally use will be in use by the church.      The choir room is available for us and although smaller we would rather make some adjustments than try to change the meeting date.    This room is smaller and there isn’t room for additional items such as spinning wheels.    Bring your on-going projects and any projects or news for sharing with others.

Since we won’t have use of the kitchen,  we will not be providing drinks nor a way to heat or serve food.  A bag lunch is recommended.

In celebration of ‘Women In The Arts’ month during March each year, guild members contribute items to fill a couple of the display cases at the Steele Memorial Library. This year our focus was ‘Lace’. We displayed a variety of lace forms including lace made with thin wire.

Along with the month long display, we also hold a workshop. This year participants learned how to use roving and cloth in the projects in place of yarn.

For new members, this is a regular meeting where guild members bring their own lunch. We will be practicing knitting with roving and with strips of cloth in preparation for the workshop at the library on March 28th.

Don’t forget to bring in any lace item you wish to have in the library display cases for the month of March. Your items can be any type of lace, tatted, knit, crochet, etc.. but please add a tag to your items with your name and method used. If you do not want your name showing in the display case, put your name on one side of the tag and the description on the other and the tag will be description side up in the case.

Also, it is time to renew your memberships

Don’t forget to return library items.

Food items for the food donation basket are always appreciated…

We canceled January’s Roc Day event due to Icy weather,  which meant we also canceled  a vendor’s day and our Roc Day luncheon.   Guild members have asked if it is possible to have the vendors event and luncheon in February.    Enough guild members have spoken up about this and thus we will have our bring a dish luncheon in February.  And guild members will be able to bring new things to sell and also their de-stash items to sell.

For anyone new to de-stash,  it is when guild members bring new items or items in good condition that they have too much of, no longer need or simply won’t get around to using.   Items can be sold, swapped or donated.  Items should be fiber or craft related.

We also hope to have a workshop on how to use a Lucet to make a cord.   If you have a Lucet bring it.  Don’t forget to bring something to share for lunch,  items for sale or destash,  cash or checks,    And as always, the food donation basket will be  out  for donations of non-perishable items to support the church we meet in.

And don’t forget to renew memberships at $12.00 for the year.

Check back for any updates or changes.
