The Fredericksburg Center for the Creative Arts (FCCA) is hosting the exhibit “Texts, Words & Images” through 27 Jan 2018.
Good Day Everyone,
I hope that you all had a wonderful time at Florence’s on Saturday, I know that I did. I would like to say thank you to all of you who voted for our Charitable Choices nomonies. I would like to announce the winner… with over 50% of the vote….
Here is how the voting broke out:
Members, I think we are going to have to cancel our Christmas Party tomorrow because of the pending weather. I’ve heard about quite a few closings in the area and the weather reports don’t look good. I’ll be really ticked off if this turns out to be nothing, but I hate to take the chance. Let’s plan to meet next Saturday at Liberty Town at 10:00 and have our Christmas celebration then. Hope everyone can stay indoors and watch the snow safely! See you next week!☃
From the Heart has been asked to help with a baby shower Operation Homefront is organizing. We would like if at all possible, to provide up to 100 baby blankets for military moms. These blankets need to be approximately 36″ square. Below are links to a knitted and a crocheted blanket, both of which can be made to any size. If you have a copy of the blue “It’s Magic” book, the patterns can also be found in the book.
Thanks so much,
(From the Heart)
Some of you may already know that Maranatha Alpaca Farm is going out of business. Lori spoke with Lisa about arranging a time for the guild to visit the farm stand to make some final purchases. Lisa has agreed to open the stand on Sunday, Nov 13, 2016 at 2 PM for us to come by and get our fill of everything alpaca. From yarn to alpaca sweaters, everything is 20% off right now. There may even be a few babies left for adoption.
I don’t think I will be able to finish the newsletter before the meeting on Saturday, but I wanted to let you know the program. I want to have a fall show and tell so we can share all our recent festival purchases, awards and finished objects.
Let me know if you have any questions.
See you Saturday,
I hope yoy are all excited and ready for the SVFF this weekend. I would like to ask if you have any input for the newsletter that you submit it no later than this Wednesday.
If you are going to SVFF, either as a vendor, or as a patron, please take some pictures and share your stories of your time.
