If you were unable to get to the April guild meeting and are available to demonstrate at May Shearing weekend at Lake Farmpark, please call or email me (440-781-2046 or linda102@twc.com) and I will add you to the sign up list. Dates are Saturday, May12 and Sunday May 13. We will be demonstrating in the Exhibit Hall again this year.
 
As for Sunday - Mother’s Day - we have four members signed up for both morning and afternoon. If you can come out to Lake Farmpark for an hour or so on Sunday to join us, please do! Bring a spinning wheel, spindle, light weight loom, inkle loom, or kumihumi ring and stop in for a  fiber fix!

... have you found that to be true?  We love to talk about our plans and projects.  At our next meeting, on April 24th, I hope that we'll all come prepared to share those little inside secrets of the guild... places to study, events to attend, places to buy more fiber, and publications that we love.  Our discussion will be presented by subject matter: Festivals, Wool Shows, Publications, Conferences, Places to Study, Websites, Blogs, and Shopping sources.  And other topics, as they come up!  Please come prepared to share your favorite go-to places.  Provide dates/locations/catalogues as possible.  Bring samples of your favorite magazines or E-Zines.  Also bring a pen and paper or your Tablet to take notes of the information that interests you.  Each of us has at least one favorite "something" in this topic.  Tell us about it!

The next time someone asks you how you found out about something fiber related, you can tell them you found out at our local guild!

Exciting news!  On April 1 we opened up our fantastic Fall Weaving Workshop on 4S and 8S Twill Towels with Susan Conover to those outside of the guild, and we already have two registrations!  That bring our total to 10.  Only 5 spaces left!

We are looking forward to learning more about working with finer threads, and in the process be able to weave some beautiful twill towels.  I've seen samples of the finished products up close, and there are some lovely twill variations that could be used in so many different projects.  Learn more about this workshop by going to the workshops tab on the website, or by contacting Nancy Curtiss, 2018 Programs and Workshops Chair.
