President's Message

We just had the final board meeting before our fabulous conference! As usual, tidying up those final details are a bit frantic but it always works out. Most of the classes still have space for additional students.

Tom Knisely's Sakiori and Zanshi class filled the first day! The tatting class with Marie Roth has been cancelled. Unfortunately, Karen Donde had to cancel her Twill Gamp class due to some unforeseen surgery. She hopes to come back to our wonderful conference in the future.

We will be waulking! (This practice involved a group of people beating newly woven tweed rhythmically against a table or similar surface to soften it. Simple, beat-driven songs were used to accompany the work.) This is a great experience if you have never had the opportunity to watch or perhaps participate.

There will be a Member's Market and the Outreach booth will return along with a great selection of vendors including the knife/scissor sharpeners. Don't forget that we will have our marvelous Fashion Show, Fiber Exhibit and Guild tables. And for the first time, the guild tables will be judged!

Lake Yale is such a beautiful, safe place for a conference. It is a great place for a get away! No cooking! It is an opportunity to meet new friends and reconnect with friends that you only see at conference.
