Dear “Crafters”!

Don't forget to bring your non-turning significant other. As in past years the craft room will be available for use by those who need a place to pursue other interests including sewing, quilting, knitting and other crafts of their choice. Tables, chairs and power are available. Bring your own equipment and supplies. If you can bring a presentation and share a project or technique that you particularly like I'm sure it would be enjoyed and appreciated. The craft room is for sharing fun and fellowship with no agenda. A visit to one or more quilt/craft shops is likely to happen.

As in other years, there will be a ‘craft’ room set aside for knitters, quilters, needle workers, and visitors too!   Craft or no craft please feel free to join us at the craft room anytime during the Symposium.  Tables and chairs will be available for our use, conversation will be interesting and fun and projects will be worked on!

There are some good quilt shops in the Indiana/Ohio region.  If you are interested in a bit of ‘shopping’ or you simply want to get away to look at fabrics, yarn, etc., we are planning a road trip to a shop or shops in the area.  Decisions on where to travel to be made by the crafters from a list of shops at the symposium!

Any questions, or suggestions for the 2017 symposium ‘craft room’, feel free to call or e-mail me. I may or may not have your answers!
