MAY MEETING CANCELED


     On Saturday, April 25, the New Hampshire Weavers Guild Board met by WebEx conferencing to reluctantly make the disappointing decision that the May in-person Guild meeting will be cancelled. As the Covid-19 pandemic continues with many uncertainties and severe limits to public gatherings we had no choice.

Since the Guild has not convened in the new year and May is the annual business meeting we have made the following decisions.

1. The May in-person New Hampshire Weavers Guild meeting must be cancelled. Since there have been no morning workshops this spring, if you have not already informed Deb Stohn, Registrar, of how you would like your prepaid registration handled, contact her at dstohn@gmail.com.

2. Membership renewal for current members will be extended to August 30, 2020. Of course it will be done only by USPS mail. Heidi Clow, membership chair, will send the cards with the new password. Both passwords will be active until August 30. Membership form can be found on page 10 of the printed and online newsletter.

3. For members who have joined since November, and thus have not experienced an in-person Guild meeting, their membership will be extended to June 2021 at no additional cost. Heidi will send your cards with the new password.

4. Ratings will be postponed until spring of 2021. Mary Ann Sanborn, Ratings chair, encourages you to continue working on them and send questions to her. masanborn@aol.com 603-783-4733

5. Since the bylaws require that members vote on the next fiscal year budget and the slate of incoming officers this will be done online. Details to follow in a separate email. Those who have no internet access will receive the information and the opportunity to comment and to vote by USPS mail.

6. The Board has worked on revising the bylaws for the past year. They also will be presented online with details included in the email about voting.

7. Mary-Ellen Burnett, vice president, will continue to offer Weavers Helping Weavers online through WebEx. Several of us have participated and found it most satisfying to see and hear other weavers talk about weaving. Mary-Ellen will send a separate email touting the benefits and inviting you to join.

8. Since we are missing out on our annual show and tell fashion and static items show, Maureen Hoffman, guild webmaster, has offered to create an online photo gallery fashion show for our participation and enjoyment. Watch for an email from Maureen with the specifics photos for both wearables and non-wearables.

The Board will meet again at the end of May to work on plans for the future, hoping to resume our fall schedule of programs. And while we are unable to meet in person, do remember to check out the resources on our website.

Hoping you all are well and are finding peace and joy as spring is blooming across our beautiful New England.

Kathy Hutchins,
NHWG president
