Topic:  Spinning Sunday
There were 10 members present and all had a wonderful time.  Monica M. was very lucky to be working with Carol T. getting familiar with her Ashford Traveler spinning wheel.  As always the atmosphere at Spinning Sunday infused with excitement about new projects and learning new things. There was also a good bit of anticipation about the March 30th opening of the Jo Ann's store located on Veteran's Memorial Parkway in the old Hancock's building.
