Gudren would appreciate help setting up the display.  Mark this time and date on your calender.  Monday, November 1. at 1:00 pm .   
Thank you, Gudrun.

Fibres Unlimited - 1st Monday Afternoon each month

For those of you who are able to attend, there is an informal gathering of guild members on the afternoon of our regularly scheduled meeting in the Guild Room at the Rec Centre.

Folks generally begin arriving at 1:00 pm and make use of guild equipment if they wish to work on guild projects, or individual projects.  Currently one of the Guild looms is warped for Christmas Tea Towels and members are welcome to make use of this warp.  It is a great opportunity to learn new skills as well as having an extended opportunity to socialize before the meeting.

Many of those attending go out for dinner in Salmon Arm before the meeting begins at 7:30 pm.

Christmas Potluck - Monday December 6, 2010

Gudrun and Alf have offered to host the Guild at their home for the annual Christmas Potluck.
Last year there was a very short meeting and a show and tell session but the focus of the gathering was social.  Perhaps we will be able to persuade Gudrun to play the piano for us one more time.   It was a lovely evening! 

Time:  5:00 pm ( Gudrun was thinking that an early start might be better for folks as we may encounter winter driving conditions by then but I will confirm this after our next meeting.)

Watch for further details.


This brand new event patterned after the slow food movement will feature local fibre.  14 Vendors will be in attendance so bring your shopping basket and cash along.  Sponsored by the Desert Sage Guild, the event is being hosted in Summerland.  Address information will be posted when it is available.
