What a great party we had on Tuesday!
Over eighty people attended! Over twenty prizes were won! There were some amazing holiday outfits. There were some great non-traditional tool demonstrations. And who will ever forget the copulating skeleton fabric?
Thanks to France B., Chriss C., Susan G., Edna K., Shelley K., Deb L. (filmmaker extraordinaire!), Janet P., Irena H. and Jane S. for putting together an entertaining evening of activities (and I’ll even take a little credit for putting a couple of power points together! Even Luddites can learn!), and to Leslie B., for acting as our last minute reviewer.
One of the best things, though, as several people have mentioned, was the opportunity to go into a number of breakout rooms, seeing old friends and meeting new ones.
We know that lots of you weren’t able to attend. We didn’t record the evening, as it was meant to be purely a social event, but we did run recordings during the event, so we passed the links along to members in an email message, as a little party favour. Even those of us who were there will likely be glad to watch them again! I can’t thank Deb L. enough for adding sound and music and special effects to these videos; they’re incredible.
I think I can safely say that the Tech Team and the Guild as a whole have come a long way, baby, since we started this virtual journey together back in June. Thanks to everyone who has helped and supported us along the way.
On behalf of the Guild, I’d like to wish everyone a safe, healthy and happy Hannukah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, whatever you may celebrate at this time of year, and a very Happy New Year! Here’s to 2021 and the coming of the vaccines!
