as Guildmaster, Morag is sending out a Challenge to all fibreworkers, not just Guild members. The Fleece to Finished Challenge will
be an on-site activity, with participants collecting some older carded
fleece on the Friday and meeting on the Monday or Tuesday to show what they
had done with it.
Discussion on what you could do on-site at Festival lead to an idea for a
Guild group project - make the banner in felt. Lady Contarina volunteered
to be the Project Organiser and Eyrika noted she has lots of fleece. Watch
out for more details.
the device to be registered as the Guild Badge is - Or, a

Morag to arrange thet submission with the College of Heralds. The ornament/badge can be the catherine wheel or little skeins. Contarina noted she had little pweterbadges available of catherine wheels and Eyrika showed a machine embroidered cloth badge that could be done for cost ($10).
Contraversy Corner - Royalty Gifts
Little discussion happened on the list or from the previous newsletter. The
small but active meeting noted that the Guild is already supporting the
Kingdom by supplying Award Cords. We also didn't want to be seen supporting
some reigns but not others, because that's when we happened to get
organised, or someone felt 'good enough' at a skill to make it for Royalty.
All agreed it is a good thing, and we shouldn't be intimidated by the
standards the WCOB are setting - with the acknowledgement that even members
of WCOB are being surprised at what they can produce when it comes down to
it. More thought and discussion needed.
Lady Teffania Tuckerton supplied 9 award cords. She was recognised as a
Journeyman Cordmaker at the GuildDay Feast.
The most recent Guild Meeting
was at Rowany Festival, A.S. XXXVIII
