May Meeting

Our next meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 3, 2017, at 7:00 pm, at St Theresa of the Little Flower, 15 Still River Road, Harvard, MA.

Please join us for “The Life Cycle of Wool” with Janet Hampson, the former owner of The Woolpack in Acton. Janet is going to share many interesting tidbits about yarn and it’s life. Please be prompt and bring size 8 needles. Janet will supply the yarn. Questions will be taken at the end of the presentation.

Since this the last meeting of the Guild this year, we hope you will want to rejoin for next year. Our treasurer, Elaine, will be happy to sign you up for next year. Please let us know how you liked this year and if there is a topic you’re interested in or maybe you’d enjoy more get togethers without a speaker. Thank you for your support and remember, everyone is an important part of our success. Our membership dues is $25.00 a year. Sign up early for a $5.00 discount. Offer ends June 1st.

Bring along the yarn you dyed at our last meeting to show off your work of art!

Guests may attend the evening at no charge.

We are privileged to host A Hundred Ravens on Saturday, June 24th, 11:30 am-3:30 pm. If you wish to join our session, please let Sheilah Johnson know no later than May 3rd. This workshop is on Gradient Dyeing, and open to 20 people. The cost is $65.00 and will need to be paid for by June 1st.

As usual, we will have the attendance raffle. Come to the meeting for your last chance of the year to win a prize!

Comments now disallowed

This web page has been up for almost a year now, and it’s amazing to me that the spammers can so easily find us. Nearly every day I get a notification of another comment. I won’t bore you, but the “nice ones” suggest that we could generate much more traffic for our site if we simply sent them money for consultations. The “not nice ones” are less subtle in their content. And very few members seem to post “real” comments.

Given the preponderance of “spam” comments compared to the “real” comments from our members, I am inclined, and have unilaterally decided, to eliminate the ability to post comments on our site.

If you have a comment on one of the pages, or have something to say, please let one of the moderators (Alison, Lynn, or John) know, and they can add a comment or a post for you. Alison and John are Administrators, and as such can add you as an Author so you can pen your own articles for the blog, if you’d like.

So, pull out a pair of headphones, plug into your computer, and enjoy!
