Main Guild Programme for 2021

 

All Guild members meet in the Mary Tavy Coronation Hall on the first Saturday of each month between 10:30 and 3:30.

 

August 7th, 2021: We would still ask you to:

  1. Please wear masks inside, use the hand sanitizer and adhere to social distancing to protect yourself and others.
  2. We will be opening windows to ensure good ventilation and if it's a nice day some of you may prefer to sit outside. 
  3. Please bring your own drinks as we still have to clean the premises after the meetings and this will cut down the workload for us.
  4. Please use the cleaning products in the toilets to disinfectant after use.

As this would have normally been our annual picnic, there are no planned activities,  so bring along your recently finished work and catch up with friends.
 

September 4th, 2021: Monthly meeting.

 

To aid the planning our future meeting topics, this is a record of what we had planned 16 months ago:

October 3rd, 2020: Exhibition

A year to the exhibition so a reminder to start thinking about what you might want to put in. We really would like every single member to contribute. It’s your exhibition and we love to see what you’ve done. Doesn’t have to be an item, a skein of dyed or handspun yarn would be delightful.
