It’s June! Our next meeting is this week, Thursday, June 13, 2013 at the Ulster Town Senior Center at 7pm.
The spectacular yarn above was made by Claudia, who demonstrated art yarn techniques at the May meeting.
We have a fun new enticement at every meeting: Door Prizes! You get one chance to win by bringing your wheel or spindle. Additional chances can be purchased for $1 each (all proceeds benefit the guild of course). We need a volunteer each month to donate a prize, so let us know if you’d like to contribute! Last month’s prize was a gorgeous skein basket, woven by Claudia! This month’s prize will be donated by Melody, who is also demonstrating how to card an art batt as our activity.
Also new: Fiber of the month club! This month’s fiber is Cheviot (which is also this year’s breed at NYS&W), sponsored by Claudia. Each month we will have a new fiber for you to explore. We would love for sponsors to organize this activity each month. If you have a breed that you’ve been wanting to try, or show off, please let us know at the meeting and volunteer to sponsor it.
We also now have a snack at every meeting. This month’s snack will be provided by Mary Ellen. Please bring your own reusable cup or mug and we’ll heat up some water for tea!
Dues are due! The guild membership dues for 2013 are $15. Your membership fee will help the guild acquire more books, equipment, and allow us to have a beautiful booth at the various fairs this year.
Date: June 13th (always the 2nd Thursday of each month)
Location: Ulster County Senior Center: 1 Town Hall Drive – Lake Katrine, NY
Topic: The Ulster County Fair is coming up quick! Only one more meeting before the fair: July 30-August 4. What will YOU be entering?
