Looking forward, Diane reported that the 2018 Holiday Sales event would be moved to the Donnelly Pavilion in downtown Mount Dora, providing more space.

(36) Peg C admires her door prize tickets, or, as she proudly proclaimed, her: ‘investment in the guild.’ (37 and 38) The grand prize of the luncheon door prize event was a hand-made, 4-shaft, 4-treddle, 24″ floor loom which had been totally reconditioned and given a new life, new shuttles and a starter stash of yarns, which Ann R won. Ann promptly announced that she is gifting the loom to a friend in Tallahassee who expressed an interest in learning to weave. Two members of the guild volunteered to provide the new owner with beginner instructions on how to get started. The spirit of Christmas is alive within the hearts of members of The Weavers of Orlando.
