November is our AGM, but as this is not an election year, the meeting should be short. The financial reports that need to be approved were mailed to all members with their October/November Bulletin.

Due to the Covid pandemic, we are planning for our fall meetings to be via ZOOM.When the situation changes we will restore our in-person meetings. We have planned a full schedule of meetings up to the end of June 2021, So join us for our monthly meetings. Invitations with the link will be sent to all members a week before the meeting. If you do not receive a link please us.
We hope you’re all doing as well as can be expected during these isolating days.
We’re sure you’ve been wondering if WOOL 2020 would still be going ahead as planned.
It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to postpone (not cancel) the conference.
Given the current government guidelines regarding physical distancing, avoiding large gatherings and quarantine rules if you’re from outside of Canada (Suzie), it seemed prudent to move WOOL to next year. We have no way of knowing what the next few months will bring, but it was time to make a decision. There is talk of another Covid surge to come in the fall/winter. Sadly, this pandemic is far from over.
Our new date is Saturday, June 5, 2021.
Following on the success of our first regular meeting via Zoom, we bring you Bensgothic with Violet Smythe in October, A jam packed meeting is planned for October 28.More details on the meeting page!

Haven’t done an exhibition piece (All the World’s a Stage with red somewhere in it)? Don’t worry, we’ll still be glad to have you. However, you still have time to do a piece before June 24!

Stay home – Stay safe. We will not be holding a physical meeting, but Sherry has once again put together a wonderful program on Pointed Pen that will be delivered to your mail box on Wednesday, April 22. As we’ve all set aside that evening for a meeting, Anne Seymour suggested that it would be great if we could all work n the program from 7:30 to 9:30. We won’t improve if we don’t do any calligraphy!!
