Very exciting news from the Salem Library—They have received a large donation that can only be spent on Fiber related things. Each of us needs to send our input on what should be purchased with these funds. Some ideas that were brought up are: having speakers come in that the guild could not afford, Videos, magazines, yarn swift and ball winder, Resource area for finding fiber related travel trips. So here is Anne’s contact info: Anne Schepppke, Public Services, Librarian, P. O. Box 14810 Salem, OR 97309 or email – firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 503-588-6124.
This month we learned about Portuguese knitting from Karen Lemmon. We watched a very good video and had training on this technique. Karen had a great hand-out and some links you can use to learn more.

MAY we are having a special event so our guild meeting will be the 3rd week instead of the 2nd week. Mark your calendars now. We are having 5 women come with all kinds of fiber and some foods as well. We met this group of ladies at OFF this past fall and asked them to come to our guild to have a Spring Fiber and Food Faire.
