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.

Meeting directions:

From 316: take Hwy 11 south into Monroe (Hwy 11 becomes Broad Street). When you get to the Spring Street traffic light downtown – the courthouse will be across the street on your left – turn right onto Spring Street. Go one block and turn left on Wayne Street and then make an immediate right into the parking lot (across from the back of Mike Cash’s place). As you face Spring Street, there is a short row of businesses under one roof. We will be in the last space on the left – with curtains in the window.

From I-20: take Hwy 11 north into Monroe (Hwy 11 becomes Broad Street). When you get to the Spring Street traffic light downtown – the courthouse will be on your right – turn left onto Spring Street. Go one block and turn left on Wayne Street and then make an immediate right into the parking lot (across from the back of Mike Cash’s place). As you face Spring Street, there is a short row of businesses under one roof. We will be in the last space on the left – with curtains in the window.

From Atlanta on 78: take the first Monroe exit (Spring Street). Stay on Spring Street until you pass the library and come to the traffic signal on Wayne Street. Turn right on Wayne Street, then make an immediate right into the parking lot (across from the back of Mike Cash’s place). As you face Spring Street, there is a short row of businesses under one roof. We will be in the last space on the left – with curtains in the window.

From Athens on 78: take the second Monroe exit (Hwy 11 to Monroe/Winder). At the top of the exit ramp, turn left and continue on Hwy 11 (Hwy 11 becomes Broad Street) into Monroe. When you get to the Spring Street traffic light downtown – the courthouse will be across the street on your left – turn right. Go one block and turn left on Wayne Street and then make an immediate right into the parking lot (across from the back of Mike Cash’s place). As you face Spring Street, there is a short row of businesses under one roof. We will be in the last space on the left – with curtains in the window.

See you there!

    Hello Margaret!! Don’t know if you remember me or not, the Skacel/Louet rep? I just found this site and am excited to hear of a knitting guild 10 miles away!!

    I am interested in attending your June meeting. Would you let me know what time you guys meet?

    Hope to see you next month. I hear your name mentioned once in a while. It’s all good, mostly re: appearances, or teaching.
