The last meeting of our season is around the corner! As usual, the Daytime Spinners will show us what they’ve been up to all year – and hopefully we’ll also get to see some of the awesome work from the Tapestry Weavers. Anybody who has attended workshops in 2013/14 is invited to bring samples and share their experiences.
This is a Potluck Event, everybody gets to bring treats and snacks!
The meeting starts at 10 am, but doors open at 9, so come early and mingle!
There will be a board meeting after the meeting concludes.
Our speaker will be Mary Conti, who was last year’s educational grant recipient. She’ll talk to us about tapestry weaving. The Tapestry Study Group members will provide the treats for us.
The April meeting is also when we vote for our new slate of officers. We start at 10, but doors open at 9, so come early and socialize!
Our speaker will be Vicki Johnson, long-time gourd artist from Mesa. She has lots of experience decorating gourds to create vessels and other decorative items. Unfortunately I have not found any more information for you, but I’m looking forward to her talk.
Daytime Spinners will supply refreshments and snacks!
The February program is coming up, folks!
Our guest will be Rita Beeson from the Arizona Fiber Mill in Prescott Valley. I won’t be able to attend, but in case someone wants to plan a day trip to the mill, count me in!
Board members will provide snacks and refreshments.

Our next speaker is our very own Lisa Takata. She’ll speak about her work with Navajo Spinners.
Snacks and refreshment provided by guild members who are not members of a study group.
See you on January 4th, 10 AM at the Waltann Community Center!
