UPDATE FROM THE BOARD

May 30, 2020


    

I am sure you are all wondering what is going to happen in the fall semester of the New Hampshire Weavers Guild. The Board met Saturday, May 30 to wrestle with the question as information changes weekly about how to stay safe in the new age of a still highly contagious virus.


We are happy to report several opportunities that we can offer virtually. There are still no plans for in person gatherings.


After consulting with our cancelled Spring 2020 afternoon speakers we will be presenting one virtual speaker each month in the fall, either on Zoom or WebEX (very similar to Zoom). Details will be available in our next newsletter. These will be Justin Squizzo, Jennifer Moore and either Sue Pretty or Elaine Isaak. Watch for information in our newsletter.


The Jennifer Moore workshops have been rescheduled to 2022 but she will be one of our fall 2020 semester virtual presenters. Watch for an opportunity to vote for which topic you would like to hear. Since she has such rich offerings, and it is hard to choose so she may present again later as a speaker.


At this time, the Daryl Lancaster spring 2021 extended workshop in person is still scheduled. Watch for an email about early registration for this from Elaine Isaak, Extended Workshop Chair.


For the future: Mary-Ellen has hosted a Weavers Helping Weavers on WebEx. It was well attended and enjoyed. We plan to offer more online meet ups and seek your input for topics.


Some of the more localized groups such as Weavers East have met by Zoom. And Linda Lincoln ran her towel workshop virtually on Zoom.  It is heartening to see other weavers, their work and hear what they are working on. It is almost as good as in person and more people can attend, even from Florida.


Since things are changing quickly, the board has decided that we will be sending a shorter newsletter more frequently.


The board will meet again at the end of June and will send updates as we have more information and may be able to offer more options. At this time our newly elected officers will be official. They are Joyce Morton, Treasurer; Cheryl Going, Recording Secretary; Elaine Isaak, 2nd Vice President and Chair of Extended Workshops (2nd term) and Barbara Goddeau, Nominating Committee.


Feel free to direct any questions, suggestions or concerns to me; Kathy Hutchins (haroldhutchins@comcast.net ).
