The luscious yarn above was made by Melody, who demonstrated art-batt carding techniques at the June meeting.
This month’s fun: Our annual Silent Auction! Bring an item or two from your stash that you’ve fallen out of love with, to donate to the guild for the auction. Many great items have shown up in the past- like books, equipment, fiber, yarn, etc… You can end up with some great stuff for just a few dollars. It’s a great way to fund the guild, and get some new goodies!
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 an incredible art batt, carded by Melody (aka byMelody) and won by Cal, who was very happy! This month’s prize will be donated by Paula.
Also new: Fiber of the month club! This month’s fiber will be brought by Kate. 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 Whitney. Please bring your own reusable cup or mug and we’ll heat up some water for tea!
