While it has been topsy turvy year the executive is working to carry on the Guild's work and our mandate of practicing and promoting Handweaving and Handspinning in Guelph and area.
Here is the beginnings of our plan for the fall.
Wednesday, September 9 - 7 pm
For those members who are feeling a little (or a lot) unsure of this new technology we invite you to a practice meeting. This will be a chance for us all to learn, to press buttons to expand the screen, to test the microphone and camera on our computer and become comfortable with the technology. It will also be good to see everyone again.
All Guild members from the 2019-2020 guild year were sent an email with the meeting link and a link to download the software. If you missed it please email email@example.com and we can resend it.
Saturday, September 12 - 2 - 3 pm
Socially Distanced Outdoor Meeting
We have arranged with the Kortright Church to use their front lawn for an in-person, socially distanced get together. Many of us are in the vulnerable category so please bring and wear a mask. Please maintain a 6’ distance from others and please bring a chair so we can sit and rest while we chat. This is a great opportunity to bring your work for Show & Tell. We will not be allowed inside the Church to use the toilet so the meeting will be limited to an hour.
Wednesday, September 23 - 7 pm
We will have have our first meeting of the year. The Zoom invitation will be sent to you closer to the date and we are working on the agenda.
