2015 Holiday Showcase Results!

The 2015 Holiday Showcase was a great success. Almost 100 members and guests attended and more than 80 pieces were displayed.  Members were asked to choose their favourites in each category, and this was a very difficult chore, as there were so many beautiful entries.  Guests had the chance to view the club and get a good sense of what our club is about.  On top of that Bernie Kamutski gave a great demonstration on making cute and rustic Christmas tree ornaments.  

For a closer look at the photos, click on the photo and it should blow up into another window.


First , a word about our demonstration.  Bernie gave a great demo on Christmas trees.  Here are some photos and a link to the notes.
