Topic:  Holiday Party
Fiber crafting, holiday spirit, food, and fun!
Bring one of your favorite dishes to share with us for a holiday lunch, and bring your favorite project to work on.  We also think it would be fun to hold multiple door prize drawings during the meeting.  If you have a small gift item or excess stash that you would like to donate, please bring that for the drawings.

Deanna and I will bring plastic ware, paper plates, napkins, and cups.  Please bring the appropriate serving utensil for your dish.

If you have any questions about the holiday party, please contact me.
