From President JoEllen Salkin:

A reminder that the results of our President’s Challenge for 2018 will be presented at our February 26th meeting.  Representatives from WomenSafe and Friends of WomenSafe be attending our meeting and will provide more information on their services, and will be accepting the hand made items we are donating.  Along with your donation, please provide instructions for care.  Also note that the WomenSafe organization provides craft activities for their residents, and if you have any extra supplies you no longer need, those will be accepted as well.  If you have questions, please contact JoEllen.

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.

Happy Holidays!

Linda Christopher and the WRSW Show Committee

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.
