SOFAAR members will be showing and telling in Annapolis Royal on Friday evening, June 1st and on Saturday, June 2nd.
This is our annual members’ exhibit and along with presenting finished work, members will be on hand working on their pieces. You will have a chance to see fibre crafting in action.
Our Friday evening event is held in conjunction with First Fridays in Annapolis Royal. The first Friday of every month, stores are open late and there are events and music. Please see the Town website for events.
SOFAAR’s show and tell will take place at Mrs. Nicholson Home at 212 St-George St in Annapolis Royal from 6 pm to 8 pm on the Friday evening and from 10 am to 3 pm on the Saturday.
SOFAAR will be holding its next fun fibre gathering day this coming Saturday, May 12th at the home of Marilyn Preus, 81 Chute Road in Bear River from 1:30 to 4 pm.
This casual gathering is open to all members to come and work on their projects and spend time with like-minded fibre crafters. Bring something to show and tell and bring your current project to work on.
Have a question that needs answering ? Or wish a second opinion about your project ? Others will be there to offer support and encouragement.
A huge thank you to all the members who donated items and those who came out to attend SOFAAR’s 2nd annual AGM and stash sale. It was a roaring success!
The membership elected the following slate of directors for 2018:
Your newly elected executive for the year is:
President – Grace Butland
Vice President – Celeste Thibodeau Stacey
Secretary – Christine Igot
Treasurer – Gail Robertson
We look forward to a busy and successful year.
Reminder: The next issue of Snippets is coming up later this month. If you have any news that you think would be of interest to the SOFAAR membership – workshops, exhibitions, good books, websites, photos of your current or recently completed projects – anything at all that is fibre-related – please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. We need your news!
Coral Fuller and her expert framing at Frames on James in Yarmouth is SOFAAR’s latest sponsor.
