Planning for CNCH 2022



We want you to join in the planning of a full conference for 2022 to be sponsored by Area 3 guilds in the San Francisco Bay Area.   The meetings will be conducted using the Zoom video conference until we are cleared for in person gatherings.  
Bob Darchi and Eugenia Gwathney of the Bay Area 
Basket Makers are Co-chairs.  Nancy Alegria is looking into venues.  So, some of the work is in progress.  

We would like to start with a Zoom meeting, Saturday June 13 at 9 am.  Link:  https://us02web.zoom.us/j/6420255734  
 At this meeting we would like to identify some areas of interest,  teachers,  a theme and some people to be involved in the planning.  If possible, we’d  ESPECIALLY like to identify a committee for programs/ teachers.   

Ask yourself,  how can I contribute and get to know other weavers, spinners, dyers  and basketmakers?  This can be a rewarding experience.  The time commitment is about 1-2 hours a week depending on your level of participation.  

See you, June 13,  9 am. On Zoom. (Just click on this link) https://us02web.zoom.us/j/6420255734

Spring 2020 Meetings and June luncheon cancelled

The rooms at the library are not available and group meetings are cancelled.

Although we are not currently meeting, don't forget about the weaving challenge for this year, "Make it work". Take the 5/2 cotton you picked at random earlier this year and figure out how to make the colors go together, to contrast, to blend--or whatever you choose. You may weave, perhaps make a band or kumihimo braid, or use any technique you prefer.

Deborah Corsini was scheduled for our cancelled March meeting. We hope to have her for a future meeting:
