June picnic

It’s the finale of the Guild Year: the annual June picnic and tag sale. This year we're celebrating its 25th anniversary! Visit with friends, enjoy an outstanding potluck lunch, admire the work of your fellow Guild members, view the completed Challenge Projects, and add to or reduce your collection of yarn and other treasures via the Tag Sale. There will be shopping, eating, visiting, showing and telling; another great Guild get together!

This year's edition will take place at Betty Polansky's home in the South:

Saturday June 9th, 10am to 2pm

836 Ballard Canyon Road, Solvang.

(parking is usually in the lot a bit further than the house, clearly marked)

REMEMBER TO BRING:

  • Your Weaver's Challenge project
  • potluck picnic fare
  • items for the tag sale (clearly labeled with your name and price)
  • your check book or ready cash for any irresistible bargains (or your dues, or the apron you ordered)
  • something you’ve created this year for Show & Tell.

Please see the map drawn by Betty's husband below

Mid-State Fair 2018

The guild traditionally participates in the Mid-State Fair. This year, there are some changes that make it even more fun and rewarding to enter some of your work, like displaying all the handwoven/spun items together, and allowing more than one entry per category. The MidState Fair is the San Luis Obispo County fair.  Unfortunately, this means that only residents of the county can enter (not the Santa Maria and South members, sorry!).

Fair dates

July 18-29, 2018, noon to 8 pm.
This year’s theme is Ole! It’s Fiesta Time! There are special exhibit classes that focus on this theme. You might be able to put an item in one of these.
