I’m Back – Almost

Sorry to be so slow getting this out. I have been “otherwise engaged”. I will begin posting again in the next day or so. In the meantime, I want to update you on the NE Georgia Fiber Arts Guild.

Sunday, June 1, is the next meeting of the guild. We will be meeting in downtown Monroe, just one block from the courthouse on West Spring Street. The lighting at the Homestead is not optimal for fiber arts projects and if we all were there at the same time, we would no longer fit. Directions to our new meeting place are below.

The May meeting was fun, though it was good we got there in “shifts” or we would not have all fit in the space. In June, we will be meeting in a larger space with better lighting, so be sure to bring some “show and tell” and projects you might want to work on/show off.

Welcome to all our newbies who came in May. We hope you will continue to join us! Pam (bittybee) was so very generous with her spinning wheel, giving Dixie and Michelle each a turn so they could get the feel of the difference from a spindle to a wheel. I see wheel SAFF purchases in their future!

For the June meeting, we are going to have a “program” of sorts. We are asking everyone to bring their favorite fiber arts books and magazines with them so others can peruse them and see what is available. It really helps to be able to skim through a book or magazine before committing to a purchase. So choose a book or two or more that is a favorite or that you feel has great information and bring it along to the meeting.
