September Meeting date and place.
Saturday, September 19
The September newsletter should be available in about two days, but we
wanted to make sure you are all keeping September 19 open for the
Guild’s wonderful opening meeting. We will be hosted by one of Utah’s
most important artists, Pilar Pobil, at her beautiful home and garden.
We will be able to see her art, have some show and tell, eat a potluck
lunch, and Pilar has generously offered to teach us an embroidery
stitch done only on the Spanish island of Malorca, where she was
raised. Pilar uses the stitch in a number of her art pieces. There
will be complete information coming up in the newsletter. Pilar lives
just east of LDS Hospital at 403 8th Avenue. We hope you can all enjoy
this remarkable opportunity! (posted 24 August 2015)
You can also read about Pilar in My Kitchen Table: Sketches from My Life by Pilar Pobil available at Amazon and other book stores.

June President’s Message
June already! Where has the time gone? It has certainly been a busy year with workshops, monthly Guild presentations, the Show, and the upcoming studio tours in Park City. I would like to thank all the folks who got involved and helped out with these events by volunteering, or by serving in an appointed position. Many thanks, too, to the outgoing board for doing such an excellent job last year!! I am so grateful to you all. This will be the last newsletter of the year—until next September. We usually take the summer off. I would like to wish everyone a weaverly summer! Sonya Campana
