Members are donating fleece and other related items once again for an online auction via Facebook! We have done this successfully a couple of times in recent years. This will go live on Friday evening, March 19, 6:00 pm, and run through Sunday evening, March 21, 6:00 pm. An album is created with photos of the items, and the bidding takes place in the comments of each item. Local winners (central Oregon) will receive items via delivery from us, winners elsewhere need to pay shipping from zip code 97756.
FIBER MARKET DAY is going ahead! We're really excited as it's been quite a while now since any of us have had any wool/fiber gathering opportunities, and as much as we love to sell and share our products, we love the time together with fellow fiber enthusiasts. We will be in the North Sister building (aka the 4H building) just inside the main entrance at the Deschutes County Fair & Expo Center. Setup is the afternoon and early evening of June 4, and some the morning of the event, which begins at 9:00 am on June 5, 2021, until 4:00 pm. We are asking a little extra patience with vendors on arrival and unloading, as the building (which the fairgrounds graciously let us have at the same price as our other building due to COVID lab being in that one) does not have the larger parking area in the back; it's a driveway. Saturday morning access will give preference to those bringing animals. A couple of us will be going to get a closer look at the layout and do our best for everyone. Further info will go out to vendors via email as the time gets closer; we may have time slot signups. All MEMBERS who are able will unload early and make room for others.
New memberships and renewals need to be in ASAP in order to get your info in the printed directory for 2021.
Our next meeting will be in person! Barb has invited us to her new location near Sisters on Hurtley Road. We will still practice COVID precautions, of course. Sunday, April 11, 2:00 pm. The address will go out via email a couple of days before to members; if you are not a member and would like to attend let us know and we'll get the location to you.
