January Member-to-Member Sale and Silent Auction

Posted by on Dec 26, 2012 in Programs

The program at the January guild meeting will be our annual Member-to-Member Sale, also known as the stash re-alignment event, as well as the Silent Auction. Come prepared to find a new tool, a book for inspiration or for a new technique, or just the right thread, yarn or fiber (or that you know you’ll find a use for someday…). And earn the gratitude of the sellers for clearing all that extra space on their studio shelves. So bring your checkbooks and cash; small bills will be appreciated.

There’s still time to sign up for a table if you had a tidy fit and cleaned out your studio space over the New Year. The fee for a table is $10.00 and goes to the Guild General Fund. Complete the coupon published in the newsletter, enclose $10.00 (check to RMWG), and send to Margaret Jaeger. Reservations must be received by January 17, 2013. You must be a member to sell.

Also at the January meeting….

The Circulation Library WILL BE OPEN at the January 2013 Meeting!

The world did not end Friday, December 21, 2012, and hopefully the Mayan Calendar has been “re-booted”. Hopefully your holidays were good, and you’re all ready for a New Year. In the past, because of the Member-to-Member sale, we have not opened the circulating library in January. We tried out opening the circulating library in the back at the December 2012 meeting, and it seemed work. So, we’re going to try it again in January – and hope you will come prepared to check out material of interest. (Thanks to Gretchen Kantor, our librarian, most of our books, videos and DVDs are posted on-line in the members’ only Library’s section. Go check it out.)

The circulation library return table will be open, located next to the membership table as you walk in. We would really appreciate it if you could/would bring back any books, magazines, DVDs, or videos you’ve had out since last spring and this fall. (If you can’t bring them back in January, please contact Dale Zitek (see yearbook) – she’s trying to keep track of and “herd” the material from the circulation library.
