And We're Off!

Thanks so much to everyone who helped make our first meeting such a success! We signed up 30 members and had an additional five to ten people in attendance. If you missed the program or just want to review the highlights, check out Mary Ellen's post.

The Ravelry group is already up and running! Thanks to our moderators Fiber Fancy and Critter Ranch.

If you have a web site or blog, please pass it along to me so that I may post it on our sideboard for all to see.

Parking was indeed a challenge yesterday, but thank you for being so co-operative. The guild has been assured that street parking is allowed. If we have a meeting on a very snowy day, plows will be a serious consideration. For our next meeting, please pull into the circle, drop off your wheel and supplies on the porch and then move your car to an appropriate parking space. Ideally, we would like to leave the spots at the house for those with physical limitations.

By next month we are anticipating that all the tables, chairs, display, and storage units from the Tea Room will have been cleared. This will leave us with a much nicer space. Again, thank you for being so understanding of space limitations for this first month.

Please check back before the next meeting for an update on next month's program.


  1. Just wanted to thank the organizers of this new exciting guild, I had a great time yesterday and enjoyed seeing all the different spindles and how they were used. Sunday afternoons work perfectly for me, so looking forward to future meetings!

  2. I posted some pictures on my site

  3. I really enjoyed the first Common Threads meeting and was very pleased to see so many in attendance. I thought the drop spindle presentation was quite interesting and hopefully, if we're able to acquire some different spindles, I can try them out. Looking forward to future meetings.
