On Saturday, November 5th, 2011 the guild will have our 4th Anniversary Celebration. Wow! Hard to believe the guild has been official for only 4 years! We have more than 40 members and have been very busy with meetings, community events, demos and workshops.

The Anniversary meeting will start at 11am for guild members, visitors and shoppers are welcomed to join us at 1pm. This allows members and vendors time to set up and for us to share a special luncheon at noon.

Below are just a few of the things discussed at the last meeting.. and a photo of a basket made during our last workshop.


Benjamin Patterson Inn Whingblinger – we were in a good location but need a bit more room to include flax prep. Weather was very nice. Pat used the Guild wheel to teach; Theresa and Lydia were weaving upstairs, on short notice.

Hemlock – comments: good, expensive, good workshops

Farm City Days.

Farm – City day is this coming Saturday, October 8, 10 am to 4 pm. We will be in the front part of the Rabbit Barn, with crafters and quilters. The Rabbit Barn is the third building on the left as you enter gate 3 from Fairview Ave.. It is across the plaza from the 4-H building. I don’t know where we will be allowed to park. I assume that we need our chairs and rugs as well as our spinning wheels. There will be Alpacas there also!!
