Find full information in one of the previous blogs below. Treadles members, have you signed up to help? At the last meeting, there was still a need for parking attendants. This is our one big event for the year where everyone's help is needed. Contact Linnie for sign ups.

Have something to donate for the drawing? This is always a fun event that really helps out the Guild treasury. At last weekend's conference, the Guild purchased a pair of cotton cards for our equipment store. If you came to hear Judith's great talk on May 17th, you heard her say they are not only great for cotton, but also short, finer fibers such as cashmere. I will post an updated list of equipment and CD's that the Guild owns for the use of its members in the next blog. We do try to put our treasury to good use.

A great big THANK YOU to those in our Guild who helped out with the on-site registration area! I know it was grueling work for those of us who were there for much of the three days, but it was well worth it. We were part of a dedicated committee that achieved a fun and well organized conference. The blogs of some of the instructors such as Sara Lamb and Daryl Lancaster have been most favorable. I encourage you all to read Sara's comments: "Excess, or spoiled for choices"
