Mid Island Weavers and Spinners (and other fibre enthusiasts) Guild

This is the Mid Island Weavers and Spinners (and other fibre enthusiasts) blog page. The group meets the first Wednesday of the month during the fall/winter/spring (September through to June). Meetings are held in the hall of St. Paul's Chruch downtown Nanaimo (across from the Dorchester Hotel - the entrance is on the other side of the church at 100 Chapel St, across the street from the new condos). 7:00 pm. Guests are welcome to come...bring your knitting, spinning wheel or other fibre addictions. Meetings usually consist of 5 minutes of business, show and tell (bring something), tea and cookies, and some sort of workshop, seminar or talk where you will learn something fibry and interesting.

Annual Show and Share Reminder

by karemill2010
Just a reminder to please remind your members of our annual show and share at the Bradley Centre, Thursday, May 29th at 7 pm. This year it is hosted by the Nanoose Weavers and Spinners Guild. We will be acting on the suggestions of the questionnaire from last fall: Keep it Simple. This means no large tables set up; tea, coffee and cookies only; show and tell limit to 3 items per person; and lots of time for talking and conversation. We hope to see lots of people attend.
Thanks, Elaine
