February and March Commons

Greetings fellow BrokenBridgians, It is with great disappointment that we must postpone our Needlepoint commons meeting on the 25th due to schedule conflicts.

We will be rescheduling it for Saturday March 17.
Sir Edward is looking forward to teaching Needle point to the Canton.

Commons will begin at 11am and Needlepoint will begin promptly at Noon. There will of course be food (Bacon) and beverages. Please Let us know if you are planning to attend so we can have an appropriate amount of materials on hand. If you have your own Needlepoint accouterments please feel free to bring it along. More on that to come.
