Member’s Monthly Meeting: Liam Blackburn of Iron Cauldron (100 Mile Jacket Project)

2023/11/08 19:30 - 21:30
The Meeting House, Riverdale Farm
Address: 201 Winchester Street, Toronto, Ontario, M4X 1B8

Unfortunately Liam Blackburn, our planned speaker for this evening, is unwell and not able to present at our meeting this week. We are rescheduling his visit for some time in the near future.

As we weren’t able to arrange a replacement speaker at short notice, our November meeting will be a bit different from the usual format. We plan to devote more time to Show and Tell, with the opportunity to ask questions and share more information about the projects displayed. We’ll also have a “Skills Sharing” adventure: Julia will bring some spindles and fibre, and lead a spindling session. If anyone else would like to share a skill (and can provide tools and materials), please let us know and we’ll make a space for you. Everyone is welcome to bring a portable project to work on and we’ll finish with a “Handwork Circle” if there’s time. The library will be open and available for borrowing. We regret not having coffee/tea and snacks for the time being.

In light of the fact that COVID infections are on the rise in the GTA and that some people, including our valued seniors, are more vulnerable to the Covid virus, we ask that everyone attending the November in-person meeting:

  • please wear a mask and keep it on indoors
  • stay home if you have any symptoms (done by several executive members for our October meeting)
  • stay socially distanced as much as you can during the meeting
  • use the hand sanitizer provided near the door of the Meeting House
  • if you can, get a booster vaccine, now available through the province’s booking site and soon to arrive at pharmacies

We regret not having coffee/tea and snacks for the time being. The library will still be open, and we will have show-and-tell as usual.
Your Executive is considering what to do for the December meeting, when we have traditionally brought and shared food. We will keep you posted.
