5 Counties Seminar 09
On September 19, 2009, our Guild collaborated with the Georgetown Heritage Guild to host the Regional 5 Counties Seminar at the Gellert Centre in Georgetown. This provided an opportunity Guilds from Guelph, Mississauga, Burlington, Niagara Falls and Cambridge, to get together. We were joined by 14 vendors from the region, who brought all kinds of “goodies” for spinning and weaving.
In addition to a keynote speaker, we also had a workshop on spinning “Crazy Batts” and another one for weaving with non-conventional materials. Over 125 participants made the day special. It was also a great opportunity to meet up with “old” fibre friends and to make new ones.
Thank you, Georgetown Heritage Guild for working side by side with us on this adventure!
