Valley Weavers & Spinners Meeting - Tuesday, June 4
Hauberg Civic Center, 1300-24th St,  Rock Island IL 
6:00 Fiber Hour - 7:00 Meeting

No program this month.  Bring all those show and tell items you've been meaning to share.      Sue suggests that we start working on our Christmas display at the August meeting, so bring ideas and/or examples of things we could make in August.      Also, think about future programs, and what you could teach or share with the group.  

*No Regular Meeting in July* 

Weaving Classes will begin in July We will start our classes on July 2nd, using our regularly scheduled monthly space at Hauberg for our first class.  Mary and Becky S, and Jean K. are currently on the class list.  Let us know if you are also interested, as we could have a couple more in the class.
Winter Weaving class students are asked to complete projects, and to either pass on their loom to someone in the class, or to return the loom to Hauberg before July.
