Spring is here and a big thank you to everyone who attended our last meeting! Twenty-one attended, with many faces we haven't seen all winter and there were many examples of the peyote toggle clasp and bar by the end of the meeting.

An additional thank you goes to Jan Falcone for her Color Theory presentation. There should be some pictures up on the blog shortly.
