1. Paid and Unpaid Advertising

  • Advertising on the RMWG web site and in the RMWG newsletter is limited to fiber-related activities.
  • Activities requiring paid admission must pay for an advertisement in the newsletter or on the web site as described in this policy. Sale of items by individuals or groups such as businesses, estate sales, moving sales, going-out-of-business sales, etc., also requires paid advertising.
  • Activities without paid admission such as fiber demonstrations, guild sales, fiber festivals, gallery exhibits, and calls for entry for exhibits, and weaving conferences (even though they may charge registration fees) may be submitted to the webmaster for posting on the blog and/or calendar on the web site at the webmaster’s discretion or to the newsletter editor for listing in the newsletter at the editor’s discretion without charge.

2. All ads and posts are subject to guild and community standards as interpreted by the webmaster, newsletter editor, and/or the RMWG Executive Board.

3. Newsletter Advertising (send questions to advertising@rmweaversguild.org)
The Shuttle Scuttle is a private newsletter produced ten times a year by the RMWG newsletter editor for the benefit of RMWG members. It is converted to a .pdf format file (in color) and posted on the RMWG website for download by members only. Some members may pay a fee to have a black and white paper copy of the newsletter mailed to them.
Submission rules:
• Deadline is Sunday, one week after the monthly meeting (normally the third Saturday of months September through May, plus a summer issue)
• Camera-ready ads may be submitted in color. Consult newsletter editor for format.
