Fiber Roving Sept. 2018~~ Hello, it has been an odd summer for me and has quickly become fall, with seeds flying and leaves beginning to turn. Some areas have already had light frost, the big cold is coming, and I feel an urgency to get all in-order for winter. One blessing of the fall and these clear cool nights has been the beautiful light of the moon and the stars to brighten the night skies. Each season has its beauty and that is something we can all celebrate. We have much business to cover, our big event is on September 29 and 30 at the Sports Arena. This is a new venue for us, it is closer to the main population areas, so will hopefully be good for attendance. This benefits all aspect of fiber and is a great educational opportunity on many levels. Very important, we need raffle items for the festival. The raffle of these items helps us pay for the cost of the festival. Your donation should be a quality, finished item or a unique, quality skein of yarn. We will raffle them off at the Festival only, your donation is greatly appreciated and will help to support the Festival and keep it going. Your business card can be attached to the item, so it also promotes you. These next two items were passed on by Kathy who handles the web page and face-book for the Guild. We have been contacted by the Homer Folk School, they are looking for instructors. The contact person is Jen and her contact info: [email protected], or 907-299-9117. A second contact was Brenda, she has years of dog hair that she would love made into a scarf as a keepsake of her beloved pet. Please contact her at 907-394-1250 or [email protected] The leaders of the 4H Fuzzy Wuzzy Fiber Club are looking for new members age 10 yrs and up. Many of their current members are graduating and they are hoping for new members to join them. ¬Kiresten and Matthea can be reached at:776-5476 or 2364. Please remember to talk the Festival up to friends, family and neighbors! Word of mouth is the best way to get people interested. If you have a donation for Festival, please contact Nancy at 262-4440, it???s her work number, so leave a message and let her know what you are donating and get it to her office before the Festival, or bring to the Festival, as long as we know it???s coming, Thanks!! See you in Sept at the Festival!! Since we have this important event in Sept, we will not have our next regular meeting until Oct???all our focus now is the Festival. If you are not volunteering, teaching, or a being vendor, still come by, visit with your fellow fiber artists, sit in the spinner???s circle or just hang out. This is our gathering for the year, come and be part of it, it???s also a great chance to be inspired!
