Not-so-Shabby Chic

At 10 a.m. on May 8, our Club is going to hold our annual fund-raiser before our meeting. Advice is to get there early; things are priced to sell and may go very fast.

Among the stars are some small designs ready to take home for Mother’s Day, and home-made cards of which a portion of the sale will go to the Club.

Please come early, and enjoy some casual conversation and excitement over our speakers, who will talk to us about using native plants in our landscapes. Even the smallest and simplest of gardens can give back to nature without much effort. Talk about maintenance free gardening!

We look forward to seeing new and “seasoned” members tomorrow!

The Fun World of Small and Petite Design

October 10 at 10:30 we are invited to Drop-inDesign.
Welcome to the Fun World of Small and Petite Design.
Small…not larger than 8″.
Petite…5″ or smaller
We will be pleased to offer a demonstration by our very own Pam Sutton. She is a multi-winner whenever design comes into view. She is talented and also generous and will share her knowledge on Tuesday.
The rules – You choose the container…see above. Pam will also bring some with her.
You choose the plant material. Small, that is. Pam will contribute some line material and small flower stems, etc.
Pam will also bring along photos of winning small and petite designs for inspiration.
Hope to see you.
