There is snow expected for this evening, but Guild is still running. That said, if you are not comfortable coming out in this weather and are in tonight’s class (Sock Knitting), Sandy has offered to make up the night on an as needed basis.
The Guelph Needlecraft Guild aims to promote all needlecrafts, including sewing, quilting, knitting, beading, crochet, and embroidery. We encourage enjoyment of needlecrafts by providing educational opportunities, fellowship, and exchange of experience, information and ideas. The Guild is a non-profit organization which was founded in 1977.
Mon Sept 11 at 7:30 is Registration, General Meeting, Class Display, Payment, Meet the Teacher, and Get Acquainted. All the organizing will be done on the same night this year.
All meetings are at Kortright Presbyterian Church, 55 Devere Dr.
Membership will remain at $40 for the year, with $8 per class. Non-member rate is $20 per class, which is comparable to local stores and continuing education classes. We have bi-weekly classes, a Cozy Corner where you can socialize and get help, potlucks and special guests. Full details are under Membership. For more information, please contact us.
We are still looking for class ideas. Non-members’ ideas are welcome. Three students is enough to run a class.

From our President—Family Friendly
I’ve been talking to people about the guild, hoping to bump our membership for next year. We’d love to see a whole new generation of people joining the Guild!
Are you a parent and want to learn to make toys or even clothes for your kids? Maybe you have the same fond (or not so fond) memories of sweaters made by family members, and wish you could do the same for the kids in your life.
There are lots of internet resources to help you get started finding a craft you love, but Guelph Needlecraft Guild can help you take it to the next level. We love to teach and introduce you to new crafts, or help you with those finishing details that turn your crafts into finished objects.
We welcome kids (just ask my 4 year old), and the space we work in has room for your little ones to play while you get some crafting time in or learn something new. We’ve even included young adults in our classes, if they want to learn something too!
