Monday January 18, 2016 was our first meeting of the new year. What a great turn out we had and we have 4 new members. Our new set of officers have got quite the year lined up for us. Starting with the new exciting programs at every monthly meeting, the Crochet in Public outings planned on every last Tuesday of the month (where we will be meeting at different places all over Wichita), a monthly electronic newsletter, members are given discounts to several craft stores and a restaurant, a monthly challenge (where at the end of the year if you participate) you will have a chance at a grand prize that you will not want to miss out on. We are still continuing on with our purple hat charity project and have included the red hat charity project as well. The guild will also be a drop off point for the Bridget Cradles project. As always our members enjoy showing and sharing our completed and works in progress projects. And January was no different.
Just a little reminder that the first meeting of the year is tomorrow, January 18, 2016. Remember we are going to be learning how to do a basic cable stitch, so bring an I or J hook and your worsted weight yarn of choose. Also a reminder that your yearly dues will be due tomorrow, so don’t forget to bring your money for that. I am looking forward to seeing all your smiling faces.
It’s a New Year, so that means dues start over. Dues are still $25 per year, BUT this year we are trying something different and offering you a discount if you want to pay for 2 years. Instead of $50 you can pay $45. (this is just an option)
Remember to bring your money for your dues and pay by the end of the January evening meeting to get your name into a drawing for a really cool prize bag filled with lots of crochet things worth $100.

The guild is always accepting door prizes, so if you have something that is crochet related in your stash of goodies and no longer need and would like to donate to our door prizes, please feel free to do so. Donations are strictly voluntary. And remember they should be something that you would like to receive yourself.
