We had a great meeting yesterday, working on the Getaway – not a lot of lace made, but a lot of work done, and plans made.
Put a note on your calendar – we have changed the date of the April meeting – it is now on Thursday, April 20th. Same time, same location, just a week earlier, to accommodate our efforts to make the Getaway (April 24-26) a success. As usual, before the meeting we will send a reminder to our email list.
Just a reminder that the Seattle Lace Day is this Saturday, October 24th, from 1-4 pm. If you have been to the Puget Sound Lacemakers meetings before, please note that the Lace Day is not in the same location; it is a few blocks away from there, in the Kent Commons building. (map)
Just a reminder to all Club members that this month’s meeting is this coming Thursday, October 22nd. We are, as usual, in the Board Room at the East Hastings Community Centre, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Hope to see you there!
The September Lace Club meeting is, of course, on Thursday the 24th.
Well, that was an interesting summer. The Portland conference kicked it off, and during July and August we had informal summer meetings in the Rose Garden at Queen’s Park. We had one attendee at the IOLI conference in Iowa at the end of July, and last Saturday Irene hosted a meeting at her new condo.
Now our regular Fall meetings are starting. Hope to see you on Thursday, September 24th, from 10 am to 1 pm, at the East Hastings Community Centre Boardroom. Drop-ins are welcome.
One reminder – this is the month we collect the dues for the next year: our regular members pay $20 for the year, or $3 per meeting to drop in. First time drop-ins do not have to pay the meeting fee.
The Lacemakers of Puget Sound’s annual Lace Day will be held on October 24th, from 1 to 4 pm. Members will demonstrate many different kinds of lacemaking, plus there will be vendors, raffles, and food.
Date: October 24, 2015
Time: 1 pm to 4 pm
Location: Kent Commons Green River Room, 525 4th Avenue N., Kent, Washington (map)
The Northwest Regional Conference in Portland takes place next week, and the Vancouver Lace Club will be sending more members than it ever has. The following Thursday, June 25th, is our next scheduled meeting. Those of us who are fresh back from the conference will bring our show and tell, and so it should be a good meeting with lots of news.
But, due to a scheduling conflict the meeting might be moved to a different room. If you can’t find us, just ask at the counter (on your right as you come through the main entrance). They will be able to direct you.
This will be our last meeting before the summer break. During the last few summers we have enjoyed unofficial outdoor summer meetings in Queen’s Park in New Westminster, where we have made lace in the gazebo in the Rose Garden. This summer we hope to continue with our park meetings, except the Rose Garden is often closed for groundskeeping or for private functions, so we are looking for another sheltered place. If you know of any suitable location, please let us know.
