|Come one, come all! |
For a fun filled day of classes, food and good company.
Broken Bridge is proud to host our annual Fiber Frolic.
There will be classes in various fiber related arts as well as other arts and sciences.
There will be raffles for all kinds of goodies, so plan to be generous if you can.
Proceeds of the raffle will go to the cantonial funds to keep events like this possible.
Check out our Facebook page for a sneak preview of the items to be raffled off.
This event will feature an A&S display. Everyone is most welcome and highly encouraged to bring your recent projects, works in progress, or any other handiwork for display.
Additionally, Master Alexandre Lerot d'Avigne and Master Philip White will have class time to help those who may not be sure how best to display their work: "We're looking to help people have more fun and be better prepared for A&S competitions and displays. We want you to get the most out of your experience and help you to most effectively educate others about just what the heck you're doing. We're looking for a chance to expound our theories, get on our soapboxes ... err, we're from the Laurelate and we're here to help!"
Volunteers will get specific feedback on their display and documentation.
