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.
We now have an email address: MIWSGuild at gmail.com

Minutes for the meeting of the Guild

Minutes for the meeting of the Guild December 3/2014

We did not have show and tell-we had Pot luck so had lots of food to eat.

We started at 6 with the pot luck and then at 7pm:

Kathy McDonald and Anne Fiddick conducted a discussion on our Mid Island Weavers and Spinners Guild Sale which is to Be Saturday March 21/ 2015
at the Cedar Community Hall 9:30 to 3:30
Some discussion on ending at 3?

It will cost us $150 Anne made the motion to spend the $150 for the hall and Crystal seconded it.

The tables will be $30 and non refundable.

Set up time 8 am and open at 9:30 We had a motion to go until 2pm. Betty made the motion and Julie seconded it.

We may have the quilt batts from Birkland Brothers. If we do we will have them at the sale and have a silent auction with sealed bids. Minimum bid $25. Highest bid gets it. Kathy made the motion for having a sealed bid and Crystal seconded it.

The Guild will have two tables-one for information and for the batts and the other will be for a Guild table that will take commission on what we sell.

We had a discussion about it being open to all or otherwise fibre related. I think we decided that as longs people knew that it was fibre related and the customers would be fibre related people it was okay.

We will need at least two tables for food. Guild members can provide the goodies.
