We're looking forward to a great line up of speakers this coming year! Sign up for guild members will begin at the Salad Supper on May 4. Bring your check book that night – if you register for more than one workshop on the signup sheet, you will need to write a separate check for each. This includes the winter and summer retreats – separate checks for those too. We ask you to post-date your check for each workshop; the date to write on your check is indicated on the signup sheet. Your check(s) will be held and will be deposited two months before each workshop. Cash is also accepted but checks are preferred. Sorry, no credit cards. Per the guild’s guidelines, there must be a 60-day notice on cancellations in order to receive a refund.
Here's a summary of each month. Photos of their workshops are on the registration form, that's included in this newsletter.
