Our next meeting will be on Tuesday November 11th. Our guest this meeting will be Nadine Beezley from Hickory Wind Farm in Bangor, WI. She will inform the guild of her CSA of Alpaca yarn and roving. Her information can be found on www.hickorywindfarm.com. She will be bringing "CSA shares" to purchase on the 13th. Nadine will also bring some yarn and roving that was processed from her alpacas. It should be quite informative! December 11th will be our annual Holiday Party. It's a great time to relax, socialize and enjoy everyone's company. There will be no January meeting.
