September 2011 – "Fly By" News


October Newsletter:
Please send all announcements, fiber related articles, and classified ads for the next issue of The Flyer to interim newsletter editor Bob Devol (e-mail). Please include all contact information—including name, address (email and/or snail mail), important dates, and/or phone number.


SEPTEMBER MEETING

The September meeting will take place this Saturday, October 3rd, from 11:00 – 2:00 pm.

SPINNING WORKSHOP NEWS

Spinning Workshops: Unfortunately, Barbara Keyes will not be able to attend this months meeting and so we will not be having a workshop for the beginning spinners. Barb should be back for next months meeting.

Jenny Bennett will be offering instruction in long-draw and the other “draws” this month, after our regular meeting beginning around 11 a.m.


HOLIDAY CELEBRATION- MOVED TO NOVEMBER



**CORRECTED FROM ORIGINAL POSTING**

Because of the church craft sale in December, which interferes with our holiday celebration, members voted to have our annual holiday celebration in November.   Bring your favorite finger foods to share!

We will also have our holiday swap.  If you would like to participate please bring a wrapped fiber-related gift in the price range of ten to twenty dollars.

Roc day will still take place in January as normal.




OTHER HIGHLIGHTS

SCARF CONSIGNMENT OPPORTUNITY
We’ve been contacted by a buyer for a local museum regarding a consignment opportunity for handspun and handmade scarves.  Interested?  See the full newsletter for more information!

CRAFT SHOW UPDATE:
From Lynn Hash:  This year we will have two booths together at the Fellowship Church craft show.  I believe that should be 20′ x 20′.  Patty benton should have more information on the size of the booth at the meeting.

I am requesting someone who is good at designing space to volunteer to coordinate booth design — it’s not my strong suit.  Last year several of you were gracious in lending display items.  If you have any displays and would let us use them it would be greatly appreciated.

Also, for those of you who wanted to give some thought to participating in the show, we still have space available.  I will have a sheet at the meeting to sign up if you are interested.

GUILD CHALLENGE
Don’t forget that our Guild Challenge wraps up at our October meeting!
