SEPTEMBER WORKSHOP

 

Our September Workshop is titled “Sunflower and Butterfly” and will be taught by Betty Hooper. We have plenty of Summer left and I still see butterflies around, so this will be a fun piece to add to your collection. The fee is $13.00, which includes the paint and canvas, which will be prepped with pattern on for your convenience. Please call Betty (615-355-7120) or me (615-516-7120) to reserve your space in the class and also mail your check, made out to MTA, to me as well. We will need a definite count no later than September 1, 2018 to have the canvas ready for everyone who has registered and paid. Thank you, Pat McIntosh

FESTIVAL OF TABLES

If you missed Festival of Tables today after our meeting, you missed a great time. Tables were just gorgeous, lunch was delicious and the auction was awesome. There were some fabulous painted pieces, baked goods, sewn items and hand-made cards up for auction. Thank you to all who made this event happen, to Larry Hooper for the use of the lodge, to all who decorated tables, to all who donated items for the auction and especially to those that came for this fun event. It was a wonderful day.
