Archive for September, 2009

We have enjoyed lots of summer activities, vacations, demos, workshops, festivals and more… Some of the members entered items in competition and came home with ribbons and awards.. we hope to take photos at the next meeting.

Now that Autumn has arrived, we are back to our regular meetings and will be adding some extra events. The Upcoming Events page with be updated with info as we receive it.

Next Meeting October 3rd, 11am – 4pm Bring your projects, news, ribbons, show and tell and anything to share. We will be discussing a rug workshop for next month.

October 10, 1pm – Basket Weaving Workshop. We will be working on the Jeremiah Market Basket… it measures 10 x 10 inches at the base and 14 inches tall including the handle, great for toting fiber, yarn and other supplies. The cost of the workshop is $35.00 all materials included. If you are interested in attending the workshop, please leave a comment or send me an email by October 3rd at the latest to insure that we have enough supplies. Money will be collected at the guild meeting or the day of the class if you can’t be at the meeting.

Several photos are included… Guild Members at the Whingblinger Event at the Benjamin Patterson Inn in Corning NY. One of our guild members and a friend in period costume entertaining the crowds at the museum. These two girls also helped with spinning and open hearth cooking. Another photo shows them once again entertaining the crowds, this time at the Fingerlakes Fiber Festival in Hemlock NY. The final photo shows the first we saw when we pull into our parking spot at the Fingerlakes Fiber Festival..

There has been a chill in the air the last few mornings, reminding us that Autumn is not too far away.

Guild members have been very busy this summer. We have participated in Demos, Workshops, been to Fairs and Festivals. A newsletter to close out the summer events and detail upcoming events will go out mid September to members.

Our regular September meeting would have fallen on Labor Day weekend and many of the members will be away or busy with family activities. And since the Guild is scheduled to spend the day at the Benjamin Patterson Inn, Whingblinger Event on September 12th, we will have a brief guild meeting there in the afternoon. Look for us under a tent, we will be easy to find with our spinning wheels and looms.

We will no longer be having Saturday evening gatherings at the church twice a month.. Our 11am – 4pm monthly meetings allows us enough time to work on projects. We may pick it up again next summer if our schedule is similar to this year’s. Meanwhile we will meet at members home in between meetings if we need/want to get together.

Don’t forget to check out the UPCOMING EVENTS PAGE. It is in the process of being updated for September and October…
