CALLIGRA-WEAVING with Rose Wong
Join Rose as she leads us through the process to make a woven joint exhibition piece on our Black and White Theme. We’ll be writing out the alphabet on strips of black, white or grey paper, so you need to bring both black and white writing mediums (ink, gel pens, felts). After we are dne, the strips will be woven together to form an exhbition piece to which we all have contributed! The paper strips will be provided.Thanks to posts by a Montreal group on Instagram for the inspiration.

AGM, Bake Sale and Art Sale!!
Lots will be going on at this meeting. First we will have the AGM which hopefully will be brief,. Followed by our popular annual Bake Sale. This is your opportunity to pick up some assorted home baked goodies for your holiday entertaining. Items for sale are on tables for viewing at the beginning of the evening, but no purchases can be made until after the AGM. This year we are also adding an ART SALE. Anita Boyd-Johnson, donated a number of art works to the Society and we are offering some of them as silent auction items. You might be able to get some art work for a really good price!
