Ava T. reminded everyone about the upcoming 10th Anniversary Tea at 2:00 pm on Saturday, April 17th, at the Dallas Arboretum. There will be great door prizes donated by shops and designers - everyone will leave with at least one door prize, as well as a delightful goodie bag full of surprises. Pictures will be taken to commemorate the day. Parking and admission are included in your paid registration; try to arrive early to tour the Arboretum before the tea begins at 2:00 pm.

Michelle L. said she mailed questions to Jackie du Plessis for the September workshop, but has not heard from her yet. The location for the workshop may possibly be the Dallas Zoo. How fun is that?

Lynn E. announced the upcoming Tony Minieri Workshop - Chicago Du Soir Part I and Part II - sponsored by DN&TG, September 24-27. The kit cost is $130; there are 6 colorway choices; deadline to register is May 1, 2010. For additional information, email me at the blog and I will forward your request to Lynn.

Kim L. gave a wonderful presentation on the History of the Tudor Rose. It was a brief history of the uniting of the white rose of York and the red rose of Lancaster into the Tudor Rose as a symbol of the Tudor dynasty. She also included a bit of history of the five Tudor monarchs, as well as a look at how the Tudor Rose is still used as a national symbol in Britain today.
