April 2024 President's Message

Hi everyone!
As I love this time of year when the leaves are budding out on the trees, and the flowers are starting to bloom! The colors just make me so happy!
I wish this was a picture of my yard, but its not!
I am looking forward to seeing many of you at the April meeting. It is our annual meeting so we will be electing our Board and Officers for the next term. The program also seems to be very useful! Please read more about it in the newsletter!
Our volunteer activities have really gotten going this month! First I want to thank everyone who volunteered this month! There was a lot going on and we could not have done it without you! I really enjoy meeting people, talking about the guild, and giving children a taste of what we know is a wonderful pastime! I also think it is good for everyone to see what goes into making cloth. We are so removed from it nowadays.
Happy weaving/spinning/dyeing/felting!
Linda Fleming
