MAY MEETING NOTES

June 5, 2009

WOOLY WONDERS FIBER GUILD

Notes of meeting of 5/30/09

The meeting was held at Suzanne’s home.

The status of the financial records was discussed. With the resignation of Cheryl Anderson as Treasurer, Virginia Weltner has agreed to assume this responsibility. She will contact previous members to obtain additional information and documentation and complete the forms required by FNB for check signing authority.

The last afghan square was completed by Bridgett and added to the rest that had been assembled by the members in March. A crocheted border was also added. Members present discussed several possible uses of the afghan and decided to donate it to the UPMC Northwest Medical Mission as an item for their Chinese Auction Fund-Raiser. Bridgett will contact the Mission Members and give the afghan to them.

We then discussed topics and locations of future meetings.  Dave and Patty have volunteered their home as the site of the “Dye Day”. This is tentatively scheduled for July 25 with June 27 as an alternate date. Sue will confirm the date with Dave and also offered to host “Dye Day” at her home if Dave and Patty didn’t. Ginny volunteered to teach various paper arts (paper is a fiber too!!!) at her home in June if that is not the Dye Day. Judy mentioned meeting locations at Pitt-Titusville that may be available during summer months.

We also discussed program development and decided that a designated “Program coordinator” or “Co-coordinators” would be a good idea. Sue and Suzanne agreed to begin by reviewing the responses to the questionnaire completed during the December 08 meeting. Julie was also mentioned as a good resource in this area.

The undyed yarn for dye day has arrived at Julie’s. She will coordinate the distribution to members who had placed orders with her.

A show and tell session followed. Sue brought various samples she had made during a Mixed Media Fabric class held at the Oil Valley Center for the Arts in Oil City. Judy brought several doggy sweaters that she has knit using patterns from Lion Brand Yarn. Judy also mentioned that her daughter, who is currently in China, suggested that the group might be interested in silk fabric that is available at very reasonable costs. We discussed silk painting and other used for silk. Bridgett brought a sock-in –progress from a pattern in “Knitting Socks with Handpainted Yarn”.
