GVWSG July 17, 2014 “meet-up”

by Joanne Nakonechny on July 14, 2014

July Meet-Up:  The Guild meets every month, the 3rd Thursday, from September – June.  Traditionally, we don’t meet during July & August.  Please join us for an informal evening, a meet-up, to share summer projects, and stay in touch.

We won’t have a formal business meeting, but a Show & Tell, and light refreshments. Please bring Show & Tell items, work(s) in progress, &/or a good book or article you’d like to share with like-minded fibre enthusiasts.  Also, please bring your coffee mug/water bottle to reduce the need for disposables.

Details: Thursday, July 17, 2014; 7-9 pm; Vancity South Burnaby Community Branch; 5064 Kingsway (at Marlborough), Burnaby

Getting there: Transit – The location is on a major bus line, and walking distance from a skytrain station.

Parking – Street parking is available around the Vancity branch.  We’re advised to not use the underground parkade, as the gate is secured at 6:30 pm and all vehicles parked underground at that time are secured until the next business day.

Vancity offers meeting room space to community groups, free of charge.  The Community Room is furnished with boardroom-style seating for 20 guests, projection equipment with internet access, kitchen facilities and an ensuite washroom.

I hope to see you soon!
