Where did the summer go!

Well our 2016 - 2017 Guild year has begun and all of our committees have been hard at work planning. We have a wonderful schedule of activities and events coming up.  Lots to look forward to.

Here is a sample of the work done over the summer by some of our members. Please participate in our Show and Tell by bringing your work to show or you can help by holding items for others at the Show and Tell. If you do not want to show your work yourself someone else will do it for you.
