February Meeting

We had a great meeting on Saturday.  There was a sampling of food that will be available on the day of the Fiber Education Festival (April 30th), the usual business, a book review by Phyllis, and a presentation by Steve.

The winner of the close-out of the guild 2015 Mug Rug challenge was Phyllis.  The 'prize' is bragging rights for a year as her mug rug was selected (via a rigorous voting process) from all those submitted, as the best choices of color meeting the criterea.  You'll notice the colors of the logo have been changed to match the mug rug colors and will remain 'hers' for a year or until the next guild color challenge.

Check out the photo's from Show and Share and expect to see the minutes later this week.
