As part of the Guild’s mandate for education, it has traditionally held Workshop Saturdays in the fall and the spring as a benefit to the members.  These sessions are subsidized by the guild and are a way for members to get together, to learn something new and to have fun. For new members it is a way to become acquainted with fellow members. Spring Fling and Fall Frolic are usually held at the Salvation Army Citadel.
