Monthly Meetings

Regular monthly meetings are now virtual, we will continue to meet virtually on the 3rd Monday of every month. Log on information will be sent to members. Zoom meeting format will continue from January to May 2021.

Visitor admission is $5, except for special guest presentations, when it is $10.

We have a Members show and tell at every meeting.  'Show' means sharing of fibre related accomplishments. 'Tell' is the sharing of anything that may be of interest to members (shows, workshops, talks).
