Members braved one of the coldest days so far to come to the guild meeting on Saturday, carrying projects to work on, goodies to share and packages for the gift exchange.    We snacked as we welcomed 3 new members and discussed guild business.   This guild really has a sweet tooth but one of the guild members makes cheese, delicious!  

We exchanged mostly hand made gifts, everyone seemed very happy with their gifts. 

A dvd on wet felting on wet felting projects was shown in anticipation of working on a guild banner in spring. 

There were projects for show and tell, including Dan’s plant dyed fibers in beautiful colors,  patterns and spinning techniques to share.   Dan had raw wool to give away and will be bringing some more to future meetings.  We may use some of that for our banner and use it as a teaching project.

Several members have agreed to do some workshops at future meetings. One that is planned so far is a needle felting project suitable for spring..Easter eggs? bunnies? flowers? 

But, before all of that we will have our Rock or Distaff day event  in January!  Guild members will have fiber, yarn and more to sell and each will bring a dish to share.   More info will be posted in a couple of weeks.
