Webmaster Note:  Don’t forget to bring beads from your stash if you would like to contribute beads for the annual Edna Perkins Project.  I will bring our current supply to the March Meeting for those who were unable to attend the February meeting.  You still have plenty of time to create some great pieces.  All piece
