Business: Cheryl has stepped down from being out VP. She will take over the treasurer spot when Jennie leaves and that seems to be immediate. We voted and Laurie will be our standing VP and we all wish her well. (Pattie said she would help should Laurie not be able to do all the duties). Great teamwork. That is exactly what we need. Next demo will be with Julie. We are going to make things for "into the forest". Come prepared for fun and if you have never seen a leaf cane; pretty certain that will be one of the things that will be shown! All things you might see on the forest floor are acceptable!
Thoughts thrown out there: We need more individuals to participate. Those in charge need to know what you want to learn and where you are trying to get to, with your skills. A list was passed in case someone had a desire that they learn something, but keep this in mind. Don't be still; let everyone know if there is something you want to know how to do. There could be one of us that knows how to do that very thing! Relax and open up with each other. We are a GROUP. Also, in case it hasn't been said before; we realize that there are some that already know or have no interest in the on going demo. There is not an issue with you coming and working on your own projects. Remember this. Our demo presenters will try not to be sensitive should you go your own way! :) There is always a rebel amongst us! We try to realize some are more or less advanced in their process than others, and we all try to fit together and enjoy.
We had a great group show up for the meeting to learn Viking Knit. Jennie was so kind to take the time and effort to show us all how to begin and end the projects. She provided everything needed to get started as well. Everyone had their dowels and wire and were working those wires and making great progress. Cheryl was 2nd in command of helping out and she was keeping us all on track. It was a fantastic demo. Thanks Jennie for being so good to us.
Attendees: Jennie, Laurie, Pattie, Christine, Maggie, Vicky, Cheryl, Michele, Marsha, Sally, Kathleen, Nancy and Kathy. Welcome to the new group members! So glad to have all show and participate!
