The Humboldt Handweavers and Spinners Guild

Is your guild membership decreasing? The Humboldt Handweavers and Spinners Guild increased its membership by 21% this past year and feels regenerated by the new members who have jumped right into their activities. Social gatherings include a Roc Day Celebration, June Dye Session, July Retreat, a sheep-to-shawl demonstration at the county fair, and a fall craft fair. The group elected to stop charging for advertising in its newsletters as class announcements, equipment sales, and items of interest are beneficial to all. President Harry Wells suggests those on the sidelines join in, including those with lapsed memberships. He says, “Serving others, and being with other fiber enthusiasts will also have an additional personal benefit—you’ll regenerate!”
