SUMMER WITH THE GUILD
Our regular meetings are on hiatus for the summer but you might run into someone from the Guild here or there:
Visit us this summer at the Fergus Fibre Festival in Fergus, Ontario on Saturday May 27th. We’ll be staffing a display there.
We’ll also be showing our work at main branch of the Guelph Library, during August.
We’ll staff a display table at the Aberfoyle Fall Fair on Saturday September 9th. Come have a chat!
If you enjoy embroidering, CEGG has a prize for that at both the Fergus Fall Fair and the Aberfoyle Fall Fair within the Homecrafts division. Show us what you’ve got!
The announcement of our classes for 2023-24 will come out in mid-August. Check back here or send us your email now and we’ll send you our August newsletter with all the info.
