We met on Saturday, July 12th, in the Game Room at Virginia Mennonite Retirement Community for our Annual Member Meeting and our monthly Open Study Group combined.
The business portion of the meeting was short and sweet; mainly consisting of members casting their vote on the annual slate for officers and board members.
With business taken care of, we moved on to fun and fiber arts activities!
Peggy brought her beading stuff and wowed us all with her gorgeous beaded jewelry!

Any and all are welcome to come on out, bring your fiber-related project and hang out with us from 10 am -2 pm every 2nd Saturday in the Game Room at Virginia Mennonite Retirement Community! Our next Open Study Group will be Saturday, August 9th, 2014.
We would certainly love to meet you and see what fiber artsy goodness you’re making!
