Informal meeting, no minutes adopted, etc.
Treasurer's report on sale by Noelle.
Guild amount after paying the rental
22 people sold items at the sale plus the guild.
Thanks to people working on the cash desk and thanks to Noelle for getting the checks out already.
Tea table donations.  Model good manners by eating only in kitchen area, so our customers sit to enjoy their refreshments as well.
Set-up crew thanked by Julia
Maybe have a food hamper by the door another year.
Louise's comments re the sale were read for members to think about.  To paraphrase: she thought a larger venue would be better and that having the sale near the end of November is preferable to earlier in the month. 
Julia has tentatively booked the United Church for 2015, the last Saturday of November.  Gabriele, Noelle and Ann are to meet with Tracy from the Art Gallery before the next meeting.
Lis has 10 people interested in learning to warp a loom.  Saturday is the preferred day.
The workshop will be on Jan 10 and 17, 2015. $5 to cover the cost of the room rental.

Lucy Neatby , Ann to resend the information.
Members present were in favour of hosting a spin- in on April 11.  Ann moves that the spin in committee get an advance, seconded Nikki, all in favour., carried.  It is expected that all monies will be recouped.  This is an event for everyone, not just spinners.  A great day to socialize and meet people from further afield with similar interests.  An opportunity to try a variety of different spinning wheels will be a feature of our event.  Further information at February's meeting.

Melissa  spoke about the new performance arts centre and the opportunity to be a part of it.  She will be the contact person.  Aviva voting is currently happening, vote each day to help gain extra funds. ( As many people as possible need to sign up and vote)  Invite a representative to our February meeting at 1 p.m.  The next meeting is February 2 at 1:00 p.m.  Michele and Ann are doing refreshments and goodies.   Fibres Unlimited begins at 10 a.m.
