Just a reminder, if you haven't looked at our schedule of programs - there is no January meeting tonight. We always have iffy weather and so have not scheduled a January meeting for years 🙂 But make sure you join us in February as we learn about backstrap weaving, and learn a spinner's tip about plying on the fly! All of this information (and more) in the SIG edition newsletter that you received in the mail back in December. If you don't have this newsletter handy, you will find it on under the "About" tab on this site. See you in February!
Backstrap weaving is a basic and early form of weaving still done around the globe. Members, to find out more about this event, please go to our "Members Only" page. Not a member? Then what a great time to join the Western Reserve Spinners and Weavers Guild! Use the registration link on this website, and join us at the start of an exciting new year!
Just a reminder that dues are due now. I will be accepting dues at our Holiday Luncheon this Saturday, January 10, at the Willoughby Brewing Company.
The cut-off date for the 2015 Yearbook is Thursday, January 15, so you need to get your dues to me by then to be included in the Yearbook. The form with my address is here.
If you are not sure whether you have paid, sign in on the Members Site and check the 2015 Roster. If your name is there, then you have paid.
From President Lisa Davis:
I hope that you all had wonderful Thanksgivings. I’m sorry that our last meeting had to be cancelled, but there was nothing else to be done with the power outage and heavy winds. Because the meeting was cancelled, I want to remind you that our holiday luncheon and gift exchange is scheduled for January 10th, at the Willoughby Brewing Company (4057 Erie St, Willoughby, OH 44094) from noon until 2 pm. Because it is after the holiday rush, I was able to talk them into letting us order off of the regular menu, so you won’t have pick from a restricted number of items. If you’re curious, you can check out their menu on line, and there should be plenty of options for people on restricted diets. I do however need a head count, and was planning on passing around a sign up sheet at the last meeting (but the best laid plans of mice and men, yadda, yadda, yadda), so if you are planning on attending I need to get an email from you so I can let the restaurant know how many to prepare for.
