January 18th Meeting--NEW MEETING TIME!

Happy New Year Everyone!

2020 is going to be a great year for our group!  We've cut the business portion of our meetings to the bare minimum so we have more time for our programs and show & share--the fun stuff!

Our first meeting of the year will be Saturday, January 18th beginning at 10 a.m. (new time decided by the 2020 board); shopping & socializing at 9:30 a.m.

After a short business meeting, Carrie will present the program....

Introduction to Ravelry--an online place for knitters, crocheters, designers, spinners, weavers and dyers to keep track of their yarn, tools, project and pattern information.

Remember to bring your "Show & Share" items and your 2019 Challenge Pillows for display.

IMPORTANT:  PLEASE PAY YOUR 2020 ANNUAL DUES BY OR BEFORE THIS MEETING.  If you know you will not be able to make this meeting, please place your dues in the mail ASAP.  Our Bylaws currently state that if annual dues are not paid by January, a member's name shall be dropped from the membership in SVH.

Those participating:  Carrie, Carla, Phyllis, Wanda, Jane & Sue; Sandi also completed the Challenge but her items were for "display only" since she organized the event.

December Holiday Brunch & Guild Challenge Reveal

Current and past SVH members are invited to meet at MJ Levine's home in Chattanooga on Saturday, December 14th, at 10 a.m. for a Holiday Celebration and Guild Challenge Reveal.

MJ will supply the drinks; everyone else should bring a brunch-type dish to share.

Please remember to bring your 2019 Guild Challenge Pillow in a NON "see-thru" bag or container.  Those with Guild Challenge items should plan to arrive 10 minutes early so Sandi has time to get them displayed properly.  There will be prizes!

Thank you, MJ for opening your home to us!

(Current SVH members will be receiving an email with written directions to MJ's home.  If you are NOT a current member and want to attend, please call 423.284.8209.)

October Guild Meeting

Saturday, October 19th @ 9:30 a.m. is our next SVH guild meeting to be held at the R&M Yarns Fiber Art Studio (8510 Hwy. 60, Georgetown, TN 37336).  Come at 9 a.m. for shopping and social time.

Program:  Martha Ooten, Guild member and owner of Alabama Grumpy Goat Farm will introduce the Guild to "Adding Surface Embellishments to Woven Fabric".  

She will provide all the embellishments and directions  as well as some hands on opportunities to try out the technique. Everyone needs to bring a darning needle. This will be a fun, informative program exploring another technique for our weaving.

Show & Share:  Those attending the recent 2-day workshop on "Summer & Winter" block weaving may want to bring their samples to show.  And, of course, any and all other items you may have woven recently.

Summer & Winter Workshop

The "Summer & Winter" 2-day workshop held Friday & Saturday, September 27 & 28 with Elaine Bradley from Atlanta was a lot of fun and a great success!  

Fourteen students participated and wove several different "blocks" of S&W possibilities.  See the "photo" tab for pictures.
