February 2005 Meeting: Sweetheart Exchange

Go Back      

Walter Green took these photos and wrote all the captions (except for the note about Sachiko)  ... The Web Mama couldn't be at the meeting because she was up in Canada playing Grand- Mama.  But when I saw Walter's photos and read his descriptions it helped me not feel so bad about missing what is one of the most fun meetings of the whole year.  

Our Member of the Month: Sachiko

The Board selected Sachiko to be member of the month when we found out that Just Beads made her their featured artist of the month.  Click here to read more about Sachiko and see some of her exquisite beads.  Note this link may not work after February.
