New Wool Sales Policy

The Guild Board discussed and voted on a new ‘wool sales at meetings’ policy, and after further discussion with Lisa Savino, who arranges our rooms with the County, the policy will be:

When we are at the Admin Building (our regular location), those wishing to sell wool can bring as much as they want unless Lisa notifies us that we only have half the room, or if we have a program presenter who is bringing wool as part of the presentation. However, if you have previously ordered wool from someone, that transaction can be completed. If we are meeting at the Police Station (as we do every November) or if we only have small space at the Admin Bldg please limit what you bring into the room. If it proves that it is too complicated when the space is small, we will readdress this part of the policy.

All wool must be set up within our meeting room. Our contract with the County says we cannot operate a ‘store’ (or maybe the word is commercial), and if someone walks into the hallway from the outside, and buys a piece of wool from someone in the hall, we now have a ‘store’. For the privilege of selling wool to Guild members, the Guild will get a 10% commission. Every place a vendor goes to sell costs money (in some cases, a LOT of money), so this is a thank you to the Guild for making the space and the audience available.

“Snow”tification Policy

Last winter we had lots of problems with weather on our meeting days. And we live all over the place; so many people’s weather is not what is happening in Flemington. After much discussion, we have decided that a committee of 3 (Cindy Boults, Linda Reitz, and Lisa Savino) will decide if our meeting will be cancelled due to weather. This decision will be made by 8 am on the day of the meeting, and Lisa will send out an email blast. We cannot post this on the website as the webmaster cannot react quickly enough to make it effective.

**It is up to each member to check their email before leaving home.**
**It is up to those who do not have email to call someone who does.**

It may be much worse where you live than in Flemington, or it may be much worse in Flemington than where you live. If you have any trepidation about coming to a meeting, don’t come. Nothing will happen at a meeting that is worth you risking your life, your health, your car, your blood pressure, your sanity.
