Patty and Sheri share:
This April our weavers guild had many exciting events and opportunities planned and on the calendar. Many of them we have been looking forward to for more than a year. And, BOOM! now we have nothing! Well, we can make the adjustment, it will be different, but we will still be weaving and we will still want to see each other and share information as well as beautiful hand woven projects as we have been doing for 50+ years.
As of today, April 6, 2020, we have notified our guild members that the Study Group meeting for April 2nd. and the April 3rd. hanging of the show at the Beachwood library will not take place.
Further cancellations are:
The entire show at the Beachwood library has been cancelled considering the library being closed until further notice.
We are cancelling our workshop with Sara Bixler April 23 & 24. Sara was considering her possibilities of video workshop or mailing us the workbook materials for the workshop. We have not talked to her for a final determination but when we do we will make the proper refunds to each weaver who had signed up for the workshop.
We will not, obviously, have to take down the show on April 24 & 25.
As for May, I wish I could use my Seer skills and be able to predict what the virus situation will be in May. At this time, I am assuming the normal study group meeting will take place on May 7 and the regularly scheduled Guild meeting will continue on May 21. We hope so! Meantime, I suggest we consider an email vote for officers for the next Weaving Year, 2020-2021. We will hopefully be able to have the show in Chagrin Falls in conjunction with the Valley Art Center’s Art by the Falls Festival. That is still on the Art Center’s “Cautiously Optimistic” calendar. June 1 will be our set up.
Won’t we be delighted as we meet next, the days will be warm, our greetings reflecting how pleased we are to see each other, our weaving efforts will look brilliant! Meantime, Weave ON!
