September Brings a New Year

The front of the building – Willard Elementary opened in 1927.

A new Guild year, that is.  Our first meeting is scheduled for Saturday, September 8th.  We welcome visitors, so please drop in and get acquainted!

See the map link at right for building location and directions, and hover over a date in the ‘Meetings’ calendar, also at right, for more information about a specific meeting.

Guild meetings are usually held on the first Saturday of the month from September through May.  While it officially starts at 10 am, people start arriving any time after 9 am to socialize, and will sometimes bring some light snacks to share.  There’s a large convenience store just across the overpass, which is handy for snagging your favorite morning drink to bring along.

 The Morris Street entrance, closest to our room.

We start with a business meeting, which is pretty informal, and sometimes quite brief.  Once we have covered that, it’s  on to the educational program!  They ARE educational, but are generally pretty fun, too.

Programs may be a demonstration or sharing time, or may be a hands-on project.  Some projects have a materials fee, which we’ll announce ahead of time.  Participation is completely optional, so if you’d prefer to just hang out and watch, or bring your own project to work on while watching or visiting, we’re fine with that!

If you’re interested in following our adventures, find us on Facebook, or submit a Contact Us form to request a subscription to our regular monthly email newsletter.  This is different from our Class Updates newsletter (with some overlap) – you can subscribe to that one at right, too.

Meetings are usually held in guild member Susan de Wit’s WitArt studio and classroom, across the hall from our weaving studio.  There’s always time before or after a meeting to do a bit of shopping in Susan’s room, or to step across and see the Guild’s looms and other equipment.

Whether you’re new to fiber arts or a long-time Guild member, you can be part of an exciting, creative new year!
