time to announce this wonderful opportunity-as our special group is limited

etc. Workshop teachers, scheduled at this time-Tricia Nugent, Joanne Harvey
and others who will have a range of skill levels f0r stitching projects. (The
I am charging does not include kit fees or these two workshops).
Tours and workshops to visit the library recourse (I LOVED THIS ONE!!!!), conservation

that will be shared with you, at these sections of the event will remind you
all of these vintage embroideries is so important and why I am on a mission
to do just that! I want it to be NOW!

you at the Inn. I am very excited about this time we will share.
