June 2012

We did not meet in May, due to CNCH 2012 in Oakland

Diablo Weavers Guild meets once a month, September through June, usually on the third Friday of the month.
    New members and guests are always welcome. 
    In September, December and June we usually meet at a member's home. 

Friday June 15  - Picnic at Vilija's house

The June picnic at Vilija's house will be on Friday,  June 15, at 11:00 am.

Bring a luncheon dish to share ~

This is the day before St. Regis' Day - the patron saint of lacemakers. 

Bring a woven [or any kind] of lace project for show & tell that you've done in the past. 

We did not meet in May as CNCH was the weekend of our normal meeting time.
Congratulations to Joan for a wonderful CNCH 2012 in Oakland!
