Began the meeting new hooker Carolyn to our group, followed by our monthly wool drawing.
Amy Miller-Dawson reviewed that the guild has joined Tactile. A proposal for a group show in March was presented. Tactile requires us to have at least 40 pieces. Works can be for sale, Tactile takes 40% commission. You can also sell in the gift shop as a personal member and this costs $15.00. The show would have insurance. Amy offered to help hang pieces. Proposal was approved.
Decision for date of the 2015 Hook in was made. We will have our annual Hook In for 2015 on October 3.
Two postcards are to be made. One to advertise the show and one to advertise the guild and Hook-In dates.
It was announced that Amy Miller-Dawson will be running for our regional coordinator of ATHA. Elections to be held in April.
Free Patterns for a snowman and a Christmas star were distributed by Mary Ann Goetz.
With our guild having so many talented hookers, it was proposed that we have a themed rug throw down. Members would bring their hooked pieces that coordinated with the monthly theme. This will be a great way to see a variety of rugs and hooking styles and allow us all to enjoy the fruits of our fellow members labors. Monthly themes:
· January-Rugs with snow in them
· Februrary- Rugs with hearts in them
· March-Rugs with a house in them
· April-Rugs with a farm animal in them
· May-Rugs with flowers in them
· June-Rugs with water in them
· July-Rugs with a patriotic symbol in them
· August-Rugs with stars in them
· September-Rugs with apples in them
· October-Rugs with a Halloween theme
· November-Rugs with a pumpkin or fall harvet
· December-Holiday Rugs
Meeting was adjourned.
December 2014 meeting
With Christmas over and New Year’s approaching a small but hardy group of hookers gathered on December 27th while the snow was flying outside. We were a small group with many of our members off enjoying the holidays with family and friends. Our monthly wool drawing occurred. Members shared their current works in progress as well as tasty snacks. Reminders that in January we will be collecting our annual dues, and that our monthly rug throw down will occur-themed rugs are rugs with snow in them.
