September Meeting Happenings

Great meeting everyone! Lots of visiting and catching up. The positivity and creativity shared was out of this world.

Thank you to Judy, Louise and Lily-Ann for supplying the refreshments. Louise, we hope you will share your recipe. Pumpkin Bread Pudding with whipped cream! Still warm!

Badge Challenge - At our next meeting (October) we are going to make name badges for demonstrations and such. We think it would be nice to help anyone visiting our tent recongnize who they can approach for information on the guild or rug hooking. Everyone who would like to particpate is invited to bring a assortment of odds and ends to share to make the badges. The badge can be anything you want - hooked, collage, embrodiered, photos, scrapbook style, plain with just your name, etc. anything goes, it's supposed to be fun and something you will want to wear.

We are tossing around the idea of alternating meeting weekday nights and weekend days.  The goal is to give everyone who wants to participate the ability to participate.  We will discuss more in October.

Stay tuned to the blog. We are going to start a monthly member highlight where you can meet the members, see their workspace and work, some tips, tricks and maybe a recipe or two.  Who wants to go first? 

Stay tuned for very overdue coverage of the rug class and Hallockville.
