October Program - Open House

The October Guild meeting date is changed!!

The meeting will be Saturday October 18, at Studio Channel Islands Art Center. The meeting will start at 9:30 and last until 3 pm. We will first have a business meeting, then Susan Goldberg will emcee the Show & Tell of the Challenges we have completed.

At the same time, we will host vendors in the Mosaic Garden outside. Guild members who would like to participate may purchase a 10x10” area for $35. Members are asked to contribute 10% of their sales up to $35 to Guild. Items to sell might be handspun, handwovens, knitted items, and equipment.

Other vendors anticipated include Village Spinning & Weaving, Anacapa Fine Yarns, San Buenaventura Soap Company, Morro Fleece Works, and Redfish Dye works.

We will have a Granny’s Attic where items can be donated and sold, with the proceeds going to guild…this is similar to our Ways and Means table. A great way to clean out your stash, equipment, books, etc. If you want to donate items, please get them to Silvia Leidig before October 11th. If you want Guild to sell your items, they must be priced, and listed, and given to Silvia Leidig, also by October 11th

Chris Villalovos is weaving a shawl from the remainder of the fiber from the Fair Sheep to Shawl. We will have a Silent Auction for the Shawl.

Betty Bingham has donated a wonderful triangle shawl that we will sell raffle tickets for.

Contact Silvia Leidig if you would like to reserve a vendor spot. Call her at 644-0678 or email
