The program was to have been on Tapestry by me, but I'm away at a wedding this meeting.  Their may be a program on double weave, but if not then the election of officers is the program.
Request from Jane: Can members bring (for donation) any empty yarn cones. I plan to take the cones to H'Art Gallery so the clients can decorate them to support the gallery.

Also, if anyone has yarn (or beads or any art supplies) that they do not intend to use, the gallery can! I had several skeins that just did not like me. So after two decades, I donated them!
