January Meeting

Special date and Place
January's guild meeting will take place on the second Tuesday, January 8.  This change is due to New Year's Day being on the first Tuesday of the month.  We will meet at Aldersgate United Methodist Church at 3600 75th St. in Urbandale.
For our program we will have a guest, Christian Davies of C&M Acres, the alpaca farm and mill near Maxwell.  He will bring yarns for sale, so bring some money!  When Christian visited  last year, it was a wonderful discussion of all things alpaca.  He will discuss this more and tell of his new mill where he is producing yarn.
