Today, Nikki and Jackie went to the WNC Farmer's Market and purchased a gorgeous Spruce Pine tree for the Folk Art Center lobby. This afternoon we decorated it, marveling at all the ornaments that have been donated by Guild members through the years as we trimmed the tree. The last image is the tree topper made by Jan Morris of Swannanoa. Come on by and take a look! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
On Thursday, members of the Guild's Annual Meeting Committee met at the Blue Ridge Assembly in Black Mountain, NC for a tour and to begin planning next year's meeting. The Blue Ridge Assembly will be a perfect locale for the meeting: filled with natural beauty and a history as rich as the Guild's own. The committee is excited about encouraging more members to attend so be sure to mark your calendars for April 17, 2010 and stay tuned for more information.
