Monthly Meetings

We will continue to meet on the 3rd Monday of every month and we're exploring alternates including in-person, Zoom and a hybrid of in-person and Zoom going forward.

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).
