Minutes for the Weavers and Spinners Guild for March 2016
14 people present
We had the Treasurers report which I didn't get down.
We had a new Member from Protection Island join Suzanne Lamoureux
Old Business- one of the colours has been changes for the ANWG conference.
Discussion about the conference wanting Guilds to donate money instead of making things for the goody bags at the conference. People only wanted to donate if we were treading lightly on the environment and not ordering mugs made in China and not locally made
Anything we pay for should be made locally was the point.
Lambs wool from Birkland brothers that Lynne Vander Linde has in her closet was brought up. Are we spinning it for the conference? Dying it. No conclusion.
Liz reported that she still hasn't heard about the Cowichan knitting class with Sylvia Olsen. The book publisher has not got back to her and neither has Silvia.
A Small salish loom was donated to the guild by Julie Devereux
and a motion was made by Liz Kaarremaa and seconded by Julie Gettings to keep the loom and Liz will store it. The meeting was adjourned. Motion made by Lynne Vander Linde and seconded by Anne Fiddick.
