February 2017 Guild Meeting Announcement...

Saturday February 11, 2017
1 pm - 4:30 pm
Quaker Friends Meeting House, 99 Morris Ave, Providence, RI

PLEASE NOTE LOCATION CHANGE: Slater Mill is CLOSED for the month of February. The Providence Friends have been kind enough to let us rent their space for this month. The building is at the corner of Olney, at blinking light. There is parking on the street, and in the lot next to the building (which is not necessarily plowed if it snows). Enter from the door on the bottom floor (it kind of looks like the back door), as we will be meeting in the downstairs space.

Meeting as usual: Spinning, show and tell, bring a potluck snack to share.
See you all soon, Happy Spinning!

But we don't post to the blog very often.
Come find us on Facebook or Ravelry.

Info on a Flax & Linen Symposium held by Another Group

At Saturday's Meeting, Betsy and MaryEllen told us about a Flax and Linen Symposium sponsored by the New England Flax and Linen Study Group and Historic Deerfield. They are offering discounts on the registration until February 1. Visit their website for more information.

This event is not sponsored by or affiliated with RISG. A bunch of members thought it was cool, so we wanted to pass the info along. Happy Spinning!
