Our SAQA Central Canada Regional Meeting to be held in Kingston will be next week, and we invite all interested members to join us for some fun and discussion about our meetings schedule for the New Year. Regional Meetings are a time for coming together and making sure that we are keeping the contacts, the ideas and the networking of like minded friends in fibre alive and well. Do plan to join us if you can, and if you have other plans for the afternoon (like a class at Embroidery Guild) try to come for the morning. We would love to see you and have a chance to catch up! Here is the agenda:
