2019-2020 Season — January Update

See schedule below for updates.


Hello everyone,

Due to a number of personal circumstances, the Guelph Needlecraft Guild Executive has decided we are no longer able to continue the Guild after Apr 2020.
Despite this difficult decision, we want to ensure that this year is engaging and satisfying to everyone involved. To that end, we have a number of proposals we’d like to discuss and vote on at the first meeting, which will be held at 7:30 on Sept 16. These proposals have to do with how Guild funds are used, and therefore member input (including past members) is imperative. 

1) Past members are offered to have their membership extended or reinstated for the 2019-2020 season. This means no membership cost to you.

2) Classes will be offered to members for free. Teachers will be paid as usual.

3) Kits will be purchased by members through the Guild. Teachers will be reimbursed as in the past.

4) Some class nights will be reserved for social time and working on projects in the Cozy Corner.


Contact Ann Garniss or the teacher to join a class. Note that guild insurance does not cover off-site classes.

The remaining classes are:

Feb 3: Embroidered spring cards @ church 7:30 – Barbra Lee $2
 
Feb 24: Cake decorating @ 83 Calendar Dr 7:30 – Ellen no cost
 
Mar 2: Unsure
 
Mar 9: Ukrainian Easter Eggs @ 83 Calendar Dr 7:30 – Ellen no cost
 
Mar 23: Needle tatting @ church 7:30 – Sandy & Barbra Lee $15 kit
(or get your own needle) – crochet cotton provided no charge – see Sandy or Barbara Lee before buying your own.
 
Mar 30: Beeswax wraps @ 83 Calendar Dr 7:30 – Ellen no cost
 
Apr 6: Nemo knit toy @ church 7:30 – Ann V
 
Apr 20: Potluck @ church 6:30 start 

As I’m sure you can imagine, there are many other issues to discuss after we have reached a group decision on how to proceed with this year both financially and in terms of events for each scheduled Guild night. I will be in attendance for each scheduled Guild night, and will be available for any discussions you need to have.

If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions, please feel free to contact me by phone or email before Sept 16 or to bring them up at the meeting itself. I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you in person.

Sincerely,
Ann G. Garniss
