Jamboards – January 2021
Our membership meeting on January 23, 2021 used an online tool called “Jamboards” to brainstorm responses to various questions. It was a fun, and efficient way to get the members present to contribute to the conversation and we ended up with some great lists.
The questions we addressed were:
- Ideas for engagement
- Zoom meetings of our smaller hooking groups — where? when? guests welcome?
- Volunteers for Project to work on a resource directory beyond our advertisers
- Newsletter: ideas for articles, volunteers to contribute
- Mentorship Opportunities
- Ideas for engagement. There were so many great ideas, I’ve made a whole page for this important topic.
- Zoom Meetings:
- Mad River Rug Hookers: meet on Friday mornings from 10-noon contact Sandy Grant firstname.lastname@example.org
- Quabbin meets 3rd Sunday of the month. All are invited. email@example.com
- Fiber Bees????
- Brattleboro—usually Tuesday mornings once or twice a month—contact firstname.lastname@example.org
- Contact Jennifer Davey email@example.com if interested in our small once a week hook in.
- Resource Directory Project volunteers: Sandra Grant, Lynn Soule, Marty Liptak — Barb will be in touch!
- Newsletter ideas:
- Newsletters will come out early in the months of March-June-September-December
- Deadline for submitting is on the 15th or the month before issue
- Suggest we post our newsletter on our FB page. More than our members will see it and it may draw new members
- Consider links to individual sections/articles. I can provide example of what the local co-op does/Bonnie Dore
- What to do with heavy wool or too-light-weight wool
- I’m doing an article on a pattern many in the Brattleboro group purchased. We aren’t finished yet. Kris
- This is just a point of fact. I don’t like reading newsletters on the computer, so I’d rather get it in the mail. So, for me an online newsletter won’t get my readership. Cindy Baehr
- Pairs of pictures—the hookers and the art—help us know each other
- Section for newsletter or web or both for stepping off the edge (falling off the rug) with other fibers, techniques, etc.
- for March 2021:
- Sandy will send 2 articles
- Suz: article on different types of hooking frames
- Suzanne Dirmaierfirstname.lastname@example.org a piece about her zoom bowl

I’ve made a new page about mentorship, and the volunteers will be in a section of that page available only to logged in members.
