April’s meeting was held one week after our 3rd Open house, we acquired 14 new members. I am not sure if they were all able to attend, but it was the largest number of people at a single meeting!
This month we did have quite a bit of business to cover, the main part of that being the guild has completed the filing of the non-profit status with the State of California and what that means in terms of our bylaws and policies and procedures. Things will pretty much remain the same, but the structure of the board and elections will be slightly different from the past. It is all good and the guild is stronger than ever.
I want to take a second to thank Marie Neel for doing such an excellent job as our membership chairperson, it makes stepping into the position so much easier and less intimidating. She has set a great example. I hope I will be able to follow through.
Suzanne had a great presentation on thumb gussets. I have made a few pairs of fingerless gloves, but the ones I have made, I haven’t been thrilled with the way the thumb stuck out. If I make another pair, I think I will know what to do if I want to change.
Lots of show and tell last meeting, it’s always my favorite part of the meeting. Getting to see what everyone has been working on.
Some of you will have to forgive me. I don’t know all of your names yet, the name tags do help tremendously, but if I didn’t happen to get it in the photo… then well, *sigh*
I love our new meeting room, but I am having slight issues with the lighting if you happen to be in front of the windows, so next meeting I may ask you to step to your left or your right just a bit, to avoid the hazy lighting for the photos.
I also want to say, don’t be shy about posting comments. If you know who someone is and want to remind everyone their name and what their project was for any given month. Please do post a comment, it will help everyone get to know each other quicker. I want everyone to feel included. I may just have to start taking notes.. 🙂
The next guild meeting is May 14th.
Next social knitting date at the library is May 21st.
Also consider joining in at Panera’s Tuesday morning 9:00 am to noonish on California Ave. or Wednesday evening at the Panera’s on Stockade Hwy. from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
(Thanks to Amy for catching I didn’t have the Wednesday evening Panera’s address. Sometimes it takes a proofreader. 🙂 )
