Our December Guild Meeting will be on the 7th at 10 am at the Western
Watauga Community Center. This our annual Pot Luck and Fiber Swap so
join us for a lot of fun. We are starting at 10 because there is a lot
going on that day including a Yarn Sale at Yadkin Fibers if some of
you want to go after the meeting.
We had a great meeting this month. We discussed forming two
committees: Marketing and Education (Susan Sharpe has the exact names
for these). Please consider participating on one of these so we can
continue all the wonderful programs,exhibits and outreach that we
offered this past year.
We will also elect our officers at the December meeting.
Our October Guild Meeting for the 19th has been canceled since it is homecoming for the collage.

The Overmountain Weaver’s Guild is having a weaving show at the Reese gallery on the ETSU campus. The show will run from the 2nd week in June to the end of July. We will be having our June and July meetings at the Reese. In June Cassie Dixon a linen and coverlet weaver and teacher at JC Campbell school will be presenting. We also have a person who is knowledgeable about Rocker looms, who will be at our July meeting at the Reese as well. If your guild is interested, I hope you might come down for a guild meeting or some other time to see the show.
The Overmountain Weaver’s Guild meet the third Wednesday of the month, 10:00?
