Lake Farmpark has invited WRSW Guild to decorate one of their Christmas trees this year!
I am making a call out for members to bring Christmas Ornaments to the October meeting! We will decorate it in the days before Thanksgiving. If you have a handmade ornament - be it made by you or an ancestor - aand you are willing to part with it for this Christmas season - please bring your ornament(s) to the October meeting. Please put it in a clear plastic bag - put your name and phone number and description of the ornament (color, size, fiber media, media, etc) so it gets returned to  you (I will also photograph it).
I will let everyone know the “Tree Decorating” Day when I know …
Many Thanks!

Are you a spinner or felter who has thought about trying weaving? Rigid Heddle weaving is a nice way to start. We have a SIG (special interest group) of RH weavers that will present at our October meeting and share what they have been doing.

This is also an important meeting because the membership will vote on new officers. By now, you have seen the slate of nominees for 2019, so come prepared to vote.

Time:  6:00-6:45 Social time; 6:45 Show and Tell, and 7:00 pm for Meeting/Program
