Hi MTDA members,

Please check your email as Debbi Weston has sent a very important email that needs to be read before our September meeting.  If you did not receive an email from Debbi, please let either Debbi or myself, Melissa Fox know so that one of us can get this email to you.

Also, another important tidbit….for our Maureen Baker seminar coming up the end of September, the size listed for the Thursday class should be 12×16.  Please make a note of this when selecting your surface.  Any questions regarding the seminar, please direct them to Pat McIntosh at domci@aol.com.
