2.  preliminary information on the 2023 Guild Challenge

The 2023 Sandhill Crane Festival is January 14 - 15 at the Birchwood Community Center.  SVH have a booth there which will be manned by our members and will be demonstrating fiber skills and selling handmade items, but primarily promoting our own Festival (Birchwood Fiber Festival) in May.  Come along and support or enjoy the activities at this annual event.

Please note we may be a bit 'management thin' on the ground this meeting.  I have a memorial service to attend in MD and Candy might not be able to attend.  Christie as deputy - in a baptism by fire event - will, I'm sure, handle the strain, but please be kind and don't forget to look forward to the election of officers in October and where-o-where will we be come Christmas party time.

Note: Our very own Chris Bindrim should be dropping by with his yarn stash that he needs to downsize.  If I understood correctly he will take any donation for yarn so expect some bargains, but please confirm with him first that that is what he meant.
