June and Summer Guild Drop-Ins – Last Tuesday of each month 7-9 pm

Location: 3861 Cedar Hill Cross Road (Community Living Victoria). Go up the stairs, inside, and down the hall on the right.

Dates:

No drop-in for June … we will all be getting ready for the ANWG conference which start on June 30.

July 25th will be a chance to share stories of the conference and work on techniques or materials picked up there.

August 29th is just before we start into the new season of Guild activity.
From past experience, when the day is very hot, the Drop In evening is cool under the shade trees at the back of the building.  Very pleasant.  Hope to see you there.

April General Meeting – Thursday April 20 (doors open at 7:00 pm)
Salt Spring Island felt-maker Laurie Steffler will return to the guild, having presented to us five years ago. According to Laurie, “much has changed” about felt-making since then. She is presenting a number of workshops at the ANWG conference — all of which are already sold out — so this will be a chance for those of us who won’t see her at ANWG to learn more about her work. http://www.saltspringfiberadventures.com/
