The Outreach Table with its items made by sister weavers, especially in Guatemala, was well supported by members attending the conference.
Total Receipts were $2375.
Breakdown is as follows:
While the outreach concept is embraced quite enthusiastically and supported by purchases, it is a bit challenging to staff the table -- especially if the coordinator is taking workshops during the conference. For next and future years, an effort will be made to have back-up coverage during workshops (e.g., by the person who is covering the registration table) A few items could not be accounted for at the end of the conference, and this may be a natural result of rather informal staffing. This project is well worth doing. Just a bit of tweaking is needed. And, it will be necessary to determine whether to offer items other than those from Guatemala. The Guatemalan items are very well and individually labelled, and they were received with sufficient time for labeling each item.
