Notes from the June meeting ...

The Guild met Saturday, June 9, at the public library in Washington.  The major topic of discussion was a review of the May 19 Wool Fiber Arts Fair.  Those in attendance agreed that the event went well.  A steady flow of visitors was reported, which we thought was a good thing as opposed to the past when we had surges in the morning and after lunch with a lull in the late afternoon.  The classes were well received.  Our food concession was busy and we ran out of some items; adjustments will be made next year.  Our Guild marketplace booth was once again well received.  There was one no-show vendor.

Some major decisions were made in regard to vendors: there will be co-vendor coordinators next year with better communication urged; vendors will be restricted to one booth space; and the booth fee will be raised slightly to be more in line with similar events in our area.

Gretchen will prepare a display in one of the display cases at the Library where we meet describing our guild.  This will help get the word out locally about our Guild.  It was also suggested that we have an information brochure about the Guild, such as we had in the past, to distribute at public events.

Amy passed around a new membership directory with 26 members listed.

The meeting room at the Library was reserved for another three months with the proviso that we may not meet in September due to an annual conflict with two other local events.  A definite decision on this will follow at the July or August meeting.
