Somewhere Over the Rainbow….

Rainbow colours

What a spectacular meeting on Saturday, September 9,2017 at Guild.

The program for this year is new, exciting and sure to be full of lots of learning and fun if this month’s meeting was any indication.  This year there will be more Workshops than Demos, a change in the order of the meetings and all kind of fun, new features.

Here is what we did at the workshop on Saturday.  Thank you Ana and Shirley H for directing and guiding us and big heartfelt thank you to the group that helped get all the kits together.  Wow!  What a lot of work, greatly appreciated by all. Here is a photo of what we did. Colour Wheel Sept workshop

If you missed this and would like to catch up, talk to Ana and Shirley H.  A few kits were left over for those that couldn’t make it.

The theme this year is “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”.  It is all about colour !  Full program will be uploaded soon.
