SEPTEMBER MEETINGS

Tuesday, September 8, 2015

 

PATTY ARCHULETA will guide us through the making of an adorable mesh tote bag! The guild will provide the black mesh and black straps. In order that we have the correct number of kits ready for the meeting, you must sign up at the August meeting. If you are unable to attend the August meeting, let us know and we will add your name to the list. This is a great project and we will have so much fun making it!
