The guild has a new meeting time.  We are starting at 11am rather than 1pm but still going to 4pm.   The business/discussion part of the meeting will be at about 1pm or so. That allows for a couple of hours to work on projects, visit..  then a break for lunch and guild business and news… the another couple of hours for sharing projects, etc.  The longer hours give members more flexibility with coming later or leaving early. 

At March’s meeting those interested in learning how to weave learned how to make a warp.  This is an ongoing project that will continue at each meeting in addition to whatever else we have going on. 

The main part of the meeting was De-stash Day.   Members brought in fiber & craft related things to sell, trade, donate. There was something for everyone. 

Two new members joined. 

Some photos from shared projects;

At the next meeting we will be exploring lace work. Several guild members have volunteered to demonstrate a variety of  lace techniques, bobbin, shuttle, needle, crochet, knitted and more..      We will then follow with a workshop in April with the lace technique members choose.

Members brought snacks to share.  For the show & tell part of the meeting, members brought items they  worked on during the year.  
Displayed along with all the member projects, was the guild project.  This is the finished shawl that guild members have been working on during demostrations in the community.  The weaving pattern for this is called Crammed and Spaced.
