MIWS AGM Guild Meeting April 2016
15 members present
We discussed ANWG conference and sending them money for the bags that will be recyclable. Heather Sinclair moved that we send money as they need a commitment by June and we didn't think they were going to order things (like cups) from China and it would be local. Kathy McDonald seconded it and all were in favor. Lynn brought up the Romney Batt from Birkland Brothers Julie Getting moved that we use it for the booth and seconded by Margo Turner. All were in favor, and it was divided up for people to spin and dye or felt for our ANWG booth.
One of our Life members Evelyn Hempinstall died recently. I tried to find more information but was unable to.
It was suggested we have a picnic in the park in the summer and take spinning and weaving to promote the guild. We could hand out information and make cards. $50 for 500 cards. We need new contacts and information. Some one was going to talk to Crystal before ordering. Liz Kaarremaa moved we spend the$50 and Margo Turner Seconded the motion and all were in favor.
Agenda for May meeting Crystal. Liz has had contact with Sylvia Olson on a workshop with Sylvia on Salish Knitting. Sylvia has been doing a PhD and after may will be in contact. Meeting Adjourned by Jeannette Brooks.
Kathy McDonald says there is a New Societies Act which we will need to find out about and get registered.
