May 2023 Guild Meeting

Hello Folx! We had a nice meeting for May. We had 43 people join us and got to do some show and tell again, yay!

As always we start with our business stuff. We postponed our treasurer’s report until next month, so Annette can give us the overview. Another Mid Atlantic Mod was successful and from what everyone says, sounds like everyone should try to enter that lottery!

We have our board election next month and Kathy gave us the overview of the candidates. Our treasurer position will be starting the 2nd year of term, so is not up for reelection.

Some announcements…

Check out the Bisa Butler show at the Jeffrey Dietch Gallery at 18 Wooster St, NYC. Until June 30. Her work is so unbelievably gorgeous! (I saw her show in Chicago and it made me cry) Check out more here

Next month’s meeting will be IN PERSON at our usual location. 10-4 Community Church of Cedar Grove, 65 Bowden Rd, Cedar Grove. We will have our meeting and then you can stay for the open sew! There is a fridge and a microwave if you bring lunch and plenty of places to order or run out to if you want to order. Of course we always appreciate when people bring snacks/drinks to share. If you are staying for the open sew, don’t forget to bring all the tools you need, including things like your power cords, glasses and extension cords!!

Hope you all stay well and keep getting crafty! Can’t wait to see what you’ve been working on!
