Members are reminded that our Christmas Party will be held at the January meeting. "Plaid" is the theme for handmade gifts to be exchanged. If you bring a gift, you get a gift. If you don't wish to exchange gifts, please come to the meeting anyway and enjoy seeing the handmade items.
Also in January, our first monthly challenge of the New Year is due, titled "Bird's-eye View". See the monthly challenges to the right of this message.
Our Yearly Challenge is "My Own Inspiration" and is listed to the right under "Links"
Send your ideas for future programs to Jeanne Knudsen.
