For those of you who were unable to attend the August guild meeting, I wanted to let you know of a couple of highlights.  Two items have been added to our WRSW Jobs and Responsibilities Handbook:  Reimbursement Award for Active Membership  (RAAM), which will be retroactive to 2016 (regarding point structure), and the SIG Guidelines. 

Also note that the dues for 2018 have been increased to $25 for an individual, with $10 for each additional family member.  We ask that dues be paid by September 30th to aid with the planning of next year’s budget.  Please send your payment to Nora Eason, 11483 Robin Wood Lane, Chagrin Falls, OH  44023. 

Finally, Susan Conover has volunteered to chair the Nominating Committee for 2018 offices.  If you are interested in serving on the Board in an elected position please send an email to  Details of the meeting are available in the minutes.

JoEllen Salkin, President

From President JoEllen Salkin:

Have you ever wondered how the Guild began?  Curious about how programming has changed over the years?  How much were dues in the early years and where did the members meet?  Unfortunately, Nancy Hart will not be able to join us as expected on Tuesday, but there are others who have been members over the years and they will be on hand to answer your questions as we take a trip down memory lane.

I’d like to request that you also bring a card of well wishes, or thank you note that will be delivered to Nancy next week.

Unfortunately Nancy Hart will not be able to attend this program on the History of the Guild, but we will still have some long-time members who know a lot about past guild activities  In addition, we have a full agenda for our business meeting this month.

One last reminder to gather some projects to bring in for our show at the Wool Jamboree. Linda is working hard to make this show a success. Hopefully Farmpark will continue this tradition to celebrate the harvest and wool!  It looks like there are some fiber-related programs available, as well as cheese making! Check it out here:

Message from Linda Christopher:
Thanks to all who signed up - and all are encouraged - to bring your fiber items in for the Farmpark Show - please remember to fill out a “Show-n-Tell” form and include it with each item you bring for the take-in at the August 22nd meeting. If you want to sell your item, put the sales price on the paper also. Show committee hopes everyone will contribute! Let’s make this show rock!


Tuesday, August 22, 2017 at Lake Farmpark, 8800 Euclid Chardon Rd., Kirtland

Come early to socialize- 6:45 pm is show and tell, followed by meeting and program

Hope you have had an opportunity to review the documents you received (as attachments) in your e-mail from our President last week. If you haven't, please take some time to read over the proposed Anniversary Program and edited SIG guidelines. We will be voting on those two items, in addition to dues,

Also PLEASE do not forget to bring your wool creations for Linda so she can organize everything to be displayed in our fall show at Farmpark's Wool Jamboree!  Let's show the community what you can do with WOOL!!
