Upcoming Guild Meetings and Important Dates

What: Studio Tour, Park City
When: Saturday, June 6, 2015, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
Where: Studios of Peggy Stuart, Karan Swanger and Margarethe Lauer

Our June meeting will allow us to see where some of our Park City weavers create their beautiful weavings. We will start at the studio of Peggy Stuart at 10:00 on Saturday, June 6. Peggy lives at 113 Paradise Road in Summit Park, there is a map at the end of the newsletter. Next up is Karan Swanger, who lives at 7930 Mustang Loop Road, which is near the Jeremy Ranch exit on I-80. The final tour is at Margareth Lauer’s home at 2836 Hackney Court in Park Meadows. At Margareth’s home, we will see her new studio. Parking is limited in all these neighborhoods, so we encourage carpooling wherever possible. Everyone is welcome—we just need you to bring a folding chair, a potluck item for lunch, and your beverage. We will plan to eat lunch at Margareth’s home, and we will have Show-and-Tell there also, after lunch. If you finished the bag that you started at Timmy Burton’s studio last June, please bring it. Also please bring any projects that you would like to let everyone see as part of our Show-and-Tell.
See newsletter for map.

We will meet at Pilar Pobil’s home (just east of LDS Hospital) at 10:00 on Saturday, September 12.

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
