February Guild Meeting

Our monthly meeting will be Saturday, February 17th and will be held at the Birchwood Community Center (If the heat is not working, the meeting will be held at R&M YARNS; check back close to the meeting date for any changes.)

Our new meeting format will continue this year because of the positive response:

  • beginning at 10 am we will enjoy an informal, relaxed time of working on individual projects, visiting, checking out our neighbors' projects, etc. (weaving, knitting, crochet, felting, etc.)

  • business meeting: 11 to approx. 11:30 a.m.

  • enjoy "Show & Share" where we present our latest, finished weaving projects for inspiration and motivation!

  • Program: TBA but each member should be prepared to list a HEMSTITCH they will demonstrate at the April meeting.  You may want to bring a RH loom for the demo or ask to demo on someone else's loom (make those arrangements prior to the April meeting).

DECEMBER 9th HOLIDAY LUNCHEON PARTY

This is a Holiday Luncheon Party in place of our normal meeting later in December...there will NOT be a meeting on Dec. 16th.  Members + spouses are invited to Steve's Studio in Polk County, TN.  (email him if you need directions)

Here's a note from our President, Steve:  

Hi all,
Some clarification on the gift giving.  The $20 limit is a guideline - break rules as you see fit. There won't be any repercussions.  This is mainly to allow for hand made gifts that might seem to be highly valued - only the crafts person will know :-).
It is a gift 'exchange' but with the ability to steal (with limitations - the rules will be available on the day) so be inspired and bring WRAPPED gifts--1 each for everyone who wants to participate.
There just might be some other fiber/weaving related challenges for those that want to partake.
There WILL be enough food and snacks for three small armies if previous occasions are any indication, so come hungry.
I'll have water, sweet and unsweetened tea plus some sodas--maybe some wine or beer. If in doubt bring your own favorite.
Using my prerogative as host, I've invited some more guests...  
We'll see you all on Saturday, December 9th!
Steve and Anne

September 16, 2023 Program

We enjoyed working on our individual projects at the beginning of the gathering.  

At 11:00 a.m. Steve led the business meeting and afterwards we enjoyed sharing our "Show & Share" items (see "photos" tab).

The program was led by Carla which was showing the group several different tapestry stitches and techniques.  Great Job, Carla!  (If there's enough interest, she may teach a workshop in the future.)
