Our Meeting

Merrin was welcomed on her official visit as Guild President.

Welcome to our visitors, Fiona, Rhonda and Diane. We hope you had a good time and will join us again.

It was a fairly quiet meeting as snow had been falling on the Mountains.

Fiona Donovan was to give a workshop on Colour Theory in Knitting but was unable to attend. Her hard drive was corrupted and all her notes and presentation were lost. She will reschedule for next year.

If you have any suggestions for workshops please contact Vicki Hughes as we need to finalize the 2011 workshop list next meeting so that it can be printed up and handed out for the December meeting.
