Scholarship Program
Fiber Guild members can apply for small scholarships to help them advance their skills in fiber arts. Print the application, fill it in, and give it to the guild secretary at a monthly meeting. Then you can go back and read the guidelines and wish you had done that first. Or, read the guidelines, ask questions, print the application, etc. We each have our own style for paperwork. Just give it to the secretary at a meeting and let her deal with it from there!
