Welcome to the West Alabama Fiber Guild Newsletter

Next meeting:  Sunday, December 18, 2016, 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm 
Location: 1000 28th Avenue, Tuscaloosa
Topic:  Spinning Sunday
Think of it as pet-free and kid-free time to work on your gift projects.  Or just come and chat. :)

Last meeting:  Sunday, December 4, 2016

Topic:  Holiday Party
Fifteen members attended our holiday party.  We had a fun get-together with food and fiber crafts!

Some items that were discussed:
-Total sales at our booth at Kentuck this year was $781, which is down from last year.
-Carol reported that we currently have $1239.61 in the guild treasury.
-Suggestion for our booth at Kentuck: Move sales items forward instead of having them back in the tent, so they are more visible.
-Suggestion for future programs: Have two or three meetings on a particular subject so that we can develop some skill in that craft instead of just getting an introduction.
-Deanna, Tori, and Carol plan to represent our guild at the upcoming Dickens Downtown event in Northport.
