Emergency General Meeting – 8.15pm 3 rd October 2018

Dear Members

It is with regret that the Committee would like to invite you to a meeting to decide the future of our Guild. This decision was taken due to the ongoing challenge whereby we do not have sufficient numbers on the Committee to organise Feltmakers events and activities.

In order to function properly the Committee needs at least 8 people who are available to attend monthly meetings, help organise; workshops; assist in the preparation and running of the Feltmakers stand and workshops at the Knitting and Stitching Show; Sunday Sessions; Exhibitions; fibre sales and social media.

The roles on the Committee involve the Chair, treasurer, membership, secretary and other roles in relation to the ongoing activities.

We hope as many members as possible can attend this important meeting to ensure the continuation of the Guild into 2019 and beyond.

The meeting will take place at 8.15pm on the 3rd October 2018 at Parish Centre Beechpark Ave, Castleknock Dublin 15
