November 16, 2013 Guild Meeting

The SVH Guild will meet on Saturday, November 16th, at the R&M Yarns Fiber Art Studio in Georgetown, TN.  The meeting will begin at 9:00 a.m. with "meet & greet" followed by a business meeting where we will elect 2014 officers and set some goals for the year.

For our program, everyone is asked to participate in a Challenge!  Go through your yarn stash and bring a selection suitable for weaving.  Everyone will choose an armful of yarns that they will use in a unique weaving project.  A photograph will be taken of you with your Challenge Stash as a "Before" photo and when you're finished (deadline TBA), we will take another photo. 

So get a few things to share and be ready for the First Challenge Project of the SVH Guild!
