Nineteen ladies braved the snowy roads for a fun-filled, or should we say fibre-filled afternoon of sharing and working on our projects on January 12th. SOFAAR welcomed three new members to the group today as well. A warm welcome to Ann, Lynn and Linda!
Kudos to Irene and Audrey for driving all the way to Paradise from Weymouth to share our afternoon.
It was wonderful to spend time together seeing new beginnings and on-going work.
Our next gathering will be in Digby on Saturday, February 9th.
All best wishes for a happy and very creative 2019 from your SOFAAR board.
It is a New Year’s Day tradition to bring in the new. So what projects are you going to start today or for 2019 ? Please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know. We would love to hear from you all and publish your responses in the next Snippets newsletter.
We have lots planned for 2019!
The first event coming up is our (now) regular monthly “Saturday Snips” gathering. We will be gathering on Saturday, January 12th from 1 to 4 pm at the Paradise Community Hall in Paradise right at 10300 Highway One. We hope to see you there with some show and tell and your dreams for projects for 2019.
There will be a Saturday gathering every month and you can see the next ones appearing on our “Events” page.
March 9th will be bring our annual general meeting and our now famous Stash sale and give away.
April brings a new event of community outreach at the Annapolis Royal Firehall. This event is called “Snips and Scraps” and will focus on waste fibres and how to use them. This is April 13th and we would love to have as many SOFAAR member as possible attend to showcase how they work with waste fibres to keep them out of the landfill. We hope you will participate. Please let us know.
These are just some of our events planned for 2019.
There will also be a members’ exhibit at the Museum in Middleton this summer so today is perhaps a good day to start a piece for that.
Your board is always open to ideas and suggestions and you are welcome to write to us at anytime.
Happy New Year and see you all very soon,
Grace, Céleste, Gail, Christine, Rachael, Donna, Sharon and Cathy
