knit and crochet and hand spinning departments, many of them made by our own members. I hope that you'll bring your Fair items (and all those pretty prize ribbons) to show off at our October meeting. Congratulations to all entrants, you inspire us to try bigger and better things!
We've just celebrated our 3rd Guild birthday! We've gone from a few people, wondering if there was enough interest in our area for a viable guild, to a full grown, very active group. We have a few stand-out events each year: our Fall Retreat at Camp Huston, our Yarn Train to Portland in April, and our table at the Mariners' Stitch 'n Pitch game. Not to mention our birthday and holiday parties, and our annual Destash Sale. Now we're adding a new event to our roster this coming year - a one day mini-retreat in January. Since we've moved the Yarn Train event to later in the Spring, we decided to have an event in the January spot, one which won't be affected by the weather (unless there's a blizzard). Save the 3rd Saturday in January for some inexpensive "me time". This is still in the planning stages, but we have the Waltz Building reserved for that day, and we'll have a grand old time. If you'd like to get in on the planning of this event, drop me an email and we'll keep you in the loop. Your ideas are greatly appreciated. It may be something as simple as an all day pajama party potluck involving fibery goodness of all kinds.
