We had such a wonderful meeting this month with Kim McBrien Evans! Members can watch Kim’s slideshow by signing into the site and going to the Previous Meeting Recordings page in the Members’ Area. Also look for an email with codes for Kim’s Patterns and Indigodragonfly Yarns.
New Meeting Registration Procedure
Hosting Guild meetings is not free, we pay for the speakers, technology subscriptions, and more. A typical meeting costs between $3 – $5 per attendee. With that in mind, we wanted to offer a way for non-members to make a donation when they register for a meeting.
Starting next month, you will be given a link to a ticketing site for each meeting at BetterWorld.org. (This is the same site we used for the December auction.) Members can just chose the I am a member option to “purchase” their ticket. Non-members can chose to make a donation or join the Guild when they “purchase” their ticket. Everyone who reserves a ticket will receive the Zoom link the morning of the meeting.
The biggest difference for members is that the deadline to reserve your ticket will be the day before the meeting.
The Guild Needs You
We are still looking for members to fill our open volunteer positions.
