Programs:

The next meeting will be held on December 13, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. at Vilija's house.  It will be a holiday potluck luncheon. Bring a dish to share and a gift for the exchange.

There was a discussion about ideas for upcoming programs.  Carol Gray is working with someone to find an agreeable date to do a presentation about rugs and rug weaving.

Other ideas presented were to have Kris Peerand review her program on weaving software, and to have guild members present programs .

Susie suggested programs by local speakers:  Debra Corsini on Wedge Weave,

Joyce Purlburt, a textile restorer, and Joy May Hilden, on Bedouin weaving. She has contact information for these suggested speakers.

Study Group:  next topic for the study group is deflected weave.  There was a proposal to purchase the Madelyn van der Hooght DVD on Deflected Doubleweave.  The motion was approved by acclimation.

Library:  Due to Vilija's move, we will need a new librarian who is a member of both Diablo Weaver's and Treadles To Threads to take the DVD collection to both meetings.  Tina Butler volunteered.

Next was Show & Tell, then a break for refreshments

After the break, we watched portions of a video from PBS's "Craft In America" series.  The segments we viewed featured Randall Darwall and Consuelo Underwood.
