Upcoming meeting dates for 2024-2025

June 19, 2024

 **There are no monthly guild meetings during July and August.  During these two months, virtual stitch Zoom sessions are scheduled for the evening of the third Wednesday of the month, starting at 6 pm.

Start Time

5:45 pm The doors will open. Members are welcome to join in setting up.  (The lower hall is accessible by elevator.)
6:00 to 7:00 pm Social time / Library   This period gives members a chance to visit the library, sign up for programs, or just circulate and socialize. 
7:00 to 7:15 pm
The library and the membership desk will close for the evening and a brief business meeting will be held.
7:15 to 9:00 pm Immediately upon conclusion of the business meeting, the programme and general stitching portion of the meeting will commence.
As the Guild has the premises until 9:00 pm, members are free to stay till then if they choose.

Earlier Start Time

For the last few years we have been meeting at an earlier start time. We believe it helps all of us get more out of our meetings, and gives our librarian and membership chair a chance to participate in programme.
