March Comes In Like a Lion

Bringing you much belated news from our March guild meeting. The guild program for the evening was a button lanyard taught by our Assistant Programs Chair, Shari H.

And here is a peek of what our May program is going to be…

Cyndi S – silk gauze peacock

Cyndi S. will be teaching how to stitch on silk gauze and using this darling peacock motif. The cost for the program is $5 for the supplies. Look how tiny that is compared to the penny sitting on the table in front of it!

And now, on to show & tell. We had some amazing things members brought to share.
