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

March 2016 Minutes

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.

New Business

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.
