Priscilla Hauser - pictures

Priscilla has plans for a beautiful lily design to keep you all busy.
See previous post for details - here are some pictures to whet your appetite. This design will be taught in both oils and acrylics.  It will take a day and a half so there will be time for Priscilla to teach her famous 'ALL ABOUT ROSES' techniques.

Convention 2014

Well that was a busy couple of days!
Our annual convention is finished until next year - we have yet to decide on the venue. We had a good turn out and the AGM provided some lively conversation and discussion, new ideas, and a fully stocked committee.

All I have to do now it put it all into the newsletter, which will be a little late this time as we wanted to include the convention news while it was fresh.

Thanks to all the members who joined in the fun, and the traders who sold us some bargains. And thanks to the teachers for four fabulous classes on Saturday, and to Andy Skinner, who endured a lively Sunday.

... right,must get on!
