Gathering of the Guilds

It's time to start preparing for the 2009 Gathering of the Guilds. I've been busy posting information on our CGOA chapter Yahoo group site. There are a lot of decisions to be made, forms to be filled out, things to plan, flyers to create, projects to prepare,...
First, the Pennsylvania Farm Show, January 10th - 17th. Here we will display some of our service projects, and give demonstrations of crochet. We need to prepare some "starts" in case people want to learn some basic stitches, and handouts about the CGOA and our chapter. We'll be at the Keystone Lace Guild booth, if you want to stop and chat.
The Gathering of the Guilds will be Feb. 28th. For this we'll need more handouts, crochet projects to display, and posters. We can also plan to do one hour workshops as a Make It/Take it. This will be something that demonstrates a little bit about crochet, while allowing people to do very basic crochet & still finish a project in a short time. No definite ideas on this yet. We need to have some crocheted items to give as door prizes, but we should have a supply of bookmarkers left from last year. After months of preparation, we were snowed out last year.
I am excited to be thinking about preparing for another Gathering. It was this event which got me interested in starting a local crochet guild!
