Many culture-shaping events occurred in 1948. The first Polaroid Land Camera went on sale in Boston MA. The Summer Olympics were held in London after a twelve year hiatus. Mary Doulas Leakey discovered a fossilized skull on Rusinga Island in Kenya. Nascar held its first race in Daytona Beach FL. And in the fast-growing city of Phoenix AZ - with a population of less than 100,000 - Arizona Desert Weavers and Spinners Guild was formed.
In order to celebrate our milestone and honor the participation and achievements of those who have gone before us and those who continue to raise awareness to the Fiber Arts, we are sponsoring a wide variety of activities throughout the years leading up to and including our milestone.
Each year our Interest Groups spearheads activity to showcase a themed year of fiber focus.
Our Guild will be celebrating its 75th anniversary at the October 7th meeting. There will be a slide show covering a history of Guild activities, a project display featuring the diversity of our creative members, favors and much more. A luncheon and cake will be provided.
As the event draws near an “Evite” will be sent out by email. Please RSVP to the Evite so we can have a close count for luncheon attendance.
This is an important milestone and a tribute to the strength of our organization. Thank you all for being members of ADWSG. We hope to see you October 7th!
Please contact Susan Carneal at email@example.com if you are interested in helping with the festivities!
