A Perfectly "Fob"ulous Start. . .

We are off to a "fob"ulous start in 2011!! We have so many wonderful things planned for the year and already have so many excellent finishes to show.

Program chair, Stephanie H., reminded us all of upcoming programs for spring:
February - Stumpwork Caterpillar
March - Jacob's Ladder Needlebook
May - Button Lanyard

Dee B., workshop chair, is still waiting to hear from Stacy Nash regarding kits for the workshop in March. Dee also held drawings for Magic participants,. awarding awesome prizes to many, and gave beautiful stitched initial fobs that she had made for each person who participated in the 2010 Magic program. Thanks, Dee!
