In NON_COVID TIMES, the Guild meets five times a year the third Saturday of the month, bimonthly from September through May. All meetings are held at The Congregational Church of South Glastonbury, located at the intersection of Main & High Sts. in S Glastonbury, CT.
Weather alerts for state meetings: If the weather looks dicey, check the link to the University of CT - Greater Hartford campus storm alerts. If the campus is closed, the guild meeting will be cancelled. Note: this is the University of CT - Greater Hartford, NOT the University of Hartford. Always consider your safety first. Weather and road conditions may vary considerably across the state, so all guild members should evaluate their local conditions before venturing out.
Maxi Workshops are usually scheduled two to three times a year, generally one to three days before the state Guild meeting.
Mini Workshops are held from 10:00 to 11:45 a.m. For most workshops, the fee is $10.00. If the guest speaker gives a mini, the fee is $12.00. Many of the workshops fill quickly, so members are advised to pre-register ahead of time. To do this, contact Registrar Steph Slattery to ensure space is available. Email (preferred) or call. Once your name is on the class list, send payment (payable to HGC) to Steph to secure your spot. If there is not sufficient time to mail payment in advance of the meeting, contact Steph to arrange for payment at the meeting. Members and nonmembers can register for workshops on the morning of the guild meeting, beginning at 9 am.
Open Workshops are held in the Church's social hall from 10 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. at each meeting. Taught by individual guild members, they are free and open to all members and guests.
*Many of the workshops, particularly the maxis, fill very quickly. It is recommended that you register straightaway.
Due to the Covid pandemic, the state and local area guild meetings are virtual (Zoom) until further notice
