Saturday, May 20, 2017 at 10:00 am.
The regular meeting program will be devoted to getting things prepped for the upcoming CHT conference. We need your help on a variety of jobs. There will be sit-down jobs, high-on-a-ladder jobs, lots of dusting in the library and floor cleaning. The Guild House Gallery must look gorgeous for the reception on June 1. Bring snack items suitable for a hearty lunch as we expect most members will stay until the job is done.
At Saturday’s meeting we will also begin selling raffle tickets for the tapestry that just came off the high back loom. The inspiration source was a photo from at Barbara Bartholomew’s dentist’s office. We don’t know where the photo was taken.
The drawing will be done during the Fashion Show Reception on Saturday evening at the CHT Conference. Anyone not a local CHH member will need to pick it up at the conference, but our members may claim it at the Guild House later on.
Tickets are $5.00 apiece or 3 for $10.00.
If you want to buy tickets and can’t get to the Guild House this month, just mail a check to:
Houston, Texas 77005
All checks need to be received by May 31st. Raffle tickets will also be sold at the Lone Star Loom Room booth in the Vendor Hall at the CHT conference. Proceeds of the Raffle to benefit CHH.Continue reading →

- GALLERY NEWS – March 2016
From Pat Powell:
The Gallery is looking for Trunk Show participants and Make-and-Take leaders (and ideas).
For the Trunk Shows, there will be a table set up specifically for the participants work. The show will last for 3 hours during which time the participant will interact with visitors, discussing their work and, hopefully, selling some of it. Participants do not have to have any inventory currently in the Gallery. The participant’s return on sales, for that day, will be 85% rather than 75%. Trunk Show guidelines the same as the annual show and gallery. Please check the details on the website under the Gallery/Shop menu tab.
Make-and-Take activities will take place the same time as the Trunk Show. The activities should be simple, require minimal materials and no special equipment. These activities are intended for our members as well as for those with little or no fiber experience. The activities are to let everyone have a bit of fun, maybe learn a little something, and generate an interest in our group and what it does.
Currently these events are scheduled for March 19th, April 9th, and May 21st. March and May are after our monthly meeting. April is on the second rather than the third Saturday. I am also trying to coordinate these dates with some of the studios next door. If they have open houses on the same days, it will bring more people into our area and more people will learn about what we do. This would be a win-win for everyone.
Please get in touch with me if you are interested in these events or have any questions.
P.S. UPDATE: More items needed for the Gallery. I’ll be at the Guild House on Tuesday, March 1st, from 1- 4. Drop me a note to let me know you’re coming.Continue reading →

From Susan Antrican:
The Rancho Inca Alpacas are the stars of the program. We will hear from the owners and get a chance to meet the animals and purchase some fiber.
12:00 to 1:00 is time to get some lunch and visit, if you are so inclined.
Afterwards, will be time for member activities. This week, Pat Powell is overseeing the change of inventory in the Gallery. Check in time is scheduled between 1pm and 4pm. Be thinking of ways you might take advantage of this time in the future.
