spring swap a success! April 30, 2007

Filed under: information,members — pgcraft @ 6:08 pm

we’ll, our spring swap was so much fun and such a success that i forgot to take pictures! but, it was a great time to get together! a great house to get together in, and the food contributions worked out PERFECTLY!! no doubles, no hummus !!, and just every course and all yummy! yes!  swapping was had by all: some of the swap items included spring themed duct tape wallet and matching purse, an organic tomato plant and a bottle of homemade wine, a spring mix cd, and a lovely potted iris! yay for spring!

at the swap we also had an impromtu meeting and decided that we would be done with membership fees (fees for online sellers still stand) and will just split the cost for the festivals/markets among those who show up to sell! yay!

and last, but not least, we’ve decided on three summer workshops.

june=duct tape wallets

july=notebooks

august=screenprinting!

yay! yay! yay!
