February Saturday Snips

February 12, 1-2 pm

Because of the ongoing CoVID restrictions, Saturday Snips will continue to be held virtually. If you’ve been hesitating to join a virtual SNIPS, we’d like to encourage you to jump in and give it a try. It’s only an hour out of your day but in this time when we feel so separated it’s nice to have a chance to connect. Past participants have been enthusiastic about the experience.

“…nice to see everyone and hear them…”

“I enjoyed the conversation.”

“…a group conversation rather than individual conversations. I really liked that.”

Most people bring something to work on (just like a live SNIPS). We catch up on current projects, share the latest news and show off our finished pieces. It’s a nice break from the “Groundhog Day” life of COVID.

To Join – click on the link below or cut and paste it into your browser about 5 minutes before the meeting starts.
