Happy Father's Day!

Location: 1000 28th Avenue, Tuscaloosa

We do not have a specific program planned for the next meeting. Bring whatever project you would like to work on, or just come and chat.

Request from Larisa regarding the new guild logo and business card:
We need high quality photos of handmade items, preferably something woven or knitted, in turquoise and blue to use in our new contact card design. Interested members can email photos or bring the actual items for photographing to the next meeting.

Topic:  Spinning & Plying Novelty Yarns
Ten members were present.
Larisa will work on a new design for our guild logo and business card.

Jennifer and Glynda went to The Middle Tennessee Fiber Festival and had a good time.  They brought back two packages of specialty fibers for today's door prize drawing.  Thanks, Jennifer and Glynda!

Larisa has a bag of Jiffy Stitchery kits that are free for anyone interested.  The kits will be stored in the guild cabinet for now.

I have a quantity of wine corks if anyone wants some for crafting. Just ask!
