Future Programming
Were looking for input for ideas and suggestions for future programming for interesting
meetings and learning experiences to share. Our membership is filled with talented
needlecrafters who are passionate about what they love to do. What techniques or interesting
ideas have caught your eye? Have you heard of a speaker, workshop or class that we could
bring to meetings? Have you learned a new trick lately that you could share? Share your ideas
