i"m happy to report that we have a full house of 15 registrants for our Spring Weaving workshop with Pat Donald on Dimity. At this point in time we are accepting names for a wait list. Please contact Nancy Curtiss, Workshops Chair, if you would like to be included.
A reminder that the Annual Holiday Luncheon is Saturday, 12-3, at the Welshfield Inn, 14001 Main Market Rd (422), Burton. There will be a random gift exchange (optional), great food and excellent company. Hope to see you there.
Thank you to all who loaned an ornament or two to the Show committee to decorate the holiday tree at Lake Farmpark! Many thanks also to all who made ornaments especially for this tree - the Felting SIG members, Joyce Fath for angels, stars and button trees, Cindy Kolacz for the knit garland and trees made of woven squares, Jerry Christopher for the "candy canes" and treetop star. And to Cindy Kolacz, Sue Ingrassia, Uarda Taylor, JoEllen Salkin and Laramie McEnaney who turned out to decorate the - surprise! - 8 foot tall tree !!!
Please go see our "WRSW Guild Handmade Holiday Tree" before the end of the year - it's in the classrooms where we often hold our meetings.

It was disappointing that we had to cancel our November meeting, but between the weather and a different location, we chose to not put anyone in potentially dangerous conditions. Unfortunately we were not able to meet Peggy Hart, author of Wool, and hear her program. This was to have been my last meeting as Guild President, and I want to thank all those with whom I have had the pleasure to work.
Other upcoming changes are: Officers Nancy, Jerry, Sally & Cindy and Committee Chairs Sheri & Susan who are also stepping down. There are plenty of opportunities to help support the mission of the Guild by volunteering your time with others who share your interests; contact Uarda for further information.
Where: Lake Metroparks Environmental Learning Center, 7250 Alexander Rd., Painesville, OH 44077
What: Wool: Unraveling an American Story of Artisans and Innovation by Peggy Hart - a presentation by the author on how wool has had a surprising impact on America! Books will be available to purchase and autograph.
We will be voting on the 2019 budget and also the revised handbook.
Hostess: Sue Ingrassia
Hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday with lots of good food!
