Challenge Ideas for this year:

1) Sample before you weave - share what you learn
2) Choose your own challenge - do something new to you
3) Trade projects - bring your project documentation
4) Make an E-textile
5) Rigid heddle loom challenge
6) Jewelry & Adornment. Any technique - adding an element new to you.

After general discussion, the idea generating most interest was Jewelry and 
adornment. This was selected as the guild challenge project by acclamation.
