March Meeting

An interesting workshop was held by Gayle De'Angelis from Warburton.   Gayle has a business called Retied Attire were she makes wearable art out of ties and scarves.   This was a hands on workshop where we all had such fun.  Greg Carolyn's husband was on hand to video all the goings on.  This video will be available for loan from our library.
