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

Discussion on The library-which we currently don’t have a location for so we are not renewing Handwoven as we can get DVD's of a year later on sale for our library.

Books that weren’t bought that we decided not to keep were taken to the Sally Anne.




Old Business Autumn is going to make the steps for our booth for the







and Jeannette Roberts suggested we start producing things for it in the colours of the conference and then we decide what to put in the display.



We had a discussion on the Workshop on Coast Salish knitting and Liz was to contact the book publisher & organize the Coast Salish Knitting workshop for either May or in the fall


Jeanette Roberts talked about the Steven Lewis Foundation Grandmothers group that make items to sell for the Grandmothers that are bring up grandchildren because their parents have died of Aids.
Betty moved that we have a speaker and Liz seconded it. I think this was to do with the Steven Lewis Foundation But not sure?

Lynn adjourned the meeting and maybe the Betty moved we adjourn and Liz seconded it?
I did not record show and tell this time-or if I did They are gone!Thank you to Jeanette Roberts for the stash busters sale

The Magmatic Boom was the shawl Jennifer was wearing.  It is a variation of the Magmatic Shawl Joyce brought in in the fall, both designed by Laura Nelkin.
