I hope that each of you is having a creative and fiber-full new year!
On Friday afternoon, January 29th, all current 2016 members were sent some important documents via e-mail from the 2015/16 Jobs and Responsibilities Handbook Committee via our guild secretary, JoEllen Salkin. If you did not receive this letter and 2 attachments, 1. please check the roster on the Members site to make sure that you are paid up for 2016, and then 2. please contact JoEllen and ask for a re-send. It is the Committee's hope that we can discuss and vote on the information contained in this e-mail at our February 23rd meeting.
Thank you for your thoughtful consideration!
the 2015/16 Jobs and Responsibilities Handbook Committee
When: September 10-11, 2016
Where: Lake Metroparks Farmpark Exhibit Hall
Full information and a workshop flyer is posted on the Workshops tab. Registration has just opened for WRSW members for this exciting new offering for both weavers and non-weavers.
Do you find that your knitting or weaving yarn stash is certain to outlive you? What if you're a spinner with no creative outlet for your yarn once you've made it? Are you a knitter or crocheter, and have wondered if you might like weaving, but have been put off by the start-up costs? Then you are sure to get excited about our upcoming workshop with Constance Hall. One of the unique features of this workshop is that if you do not own a rigid heddle loom, Constance has a limited number of looms that she will bring. There is NO COST for this service during the workshop, and if you like it, you can arrange to purchase it! Imagine! A weaving workshop where you get a free loom to play on during the class! Of course, if you already have a fully functioning rigid heddle loom you are also welcome to register. The more, the merrier!
Registration is now open for WRSW members, and will open to the public on April 1. This is a great class for never-have woven and experienced rigid heddle weavers alike. Come join us!
