Mary Jane Todd met with several members and conducted a class on rug yarn needle punch. The remainder of the members gathered in a separate area and worked on their current rug hooking projects or other needlework items.
Reminder! -- At the April meeting Sug McClain will be teaching a class to Guild members on needle punch using floss. If you wish to participate you need to bring the following items: a pattern of your choice, a punch needle for floss, and a frame. Sug indicated that supplies can be purchased at various local stores.
Teresa Kinman took the raffle rug home to finish. She will take a photo of the completed rug, make color copies, and distribute them with raffle tickets at the April meeting.
The library meeting room has been reserved for Guild meetings in April, May and June.
