Home – Western Reserve Spinners & Weavers

A note from Linda Christopher:
Thank you once again to all WRSW members who have their fiber arts on display at Lake Farmpark - it is a wonderful showing of our talents! I hope everyone has had a chance to view the show in the west hallway. We will be taking the show down on Sunday, September 24 - the second day of the Wool Jamboree weekend - at 4:00 pm. If you would like to be present and take your item(s) home at that time, please show up at Lake Farmpark (tell them at the entry desk why you are there). If you cannot make it at that time, the Show Committee will phone you and get your item(s) to you along with hangers and garment bags!

May 5-6, 2018 -- Spend the weekend immersed in color with Carol Soderlund as she teaches us all about "Glowing Gradients: Luminous Color in Yarn and Cloth". Mix a rainbow of hues from 3 primary colors ultimately building a notebook of colors and formulations. For more information and registration information, click here
 

There is no guild meeting this month, but we hope you will all attend the Wool Jamboree at Lake Farmpark, September 23rd and 24th (9am-5pm) We have our show on display (many thanks to Linda Christopher and all that helped make that happen). This is our time to show off our craft and many of you have signed up to demo. Also we have a "make 'n' take" of felted soap (thanks to Cheryl Laufer for headed that up).

You will find fleece for sale, corn maze, sheep shearing, live music and yes, there will be vendors! Oh yeah and If your husband likes tractors, it is a tractor show too!

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 szc@conoverworkshops.com.  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.
