- Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves Saturday. I saw people doing
fiber arts, scribal arts, pottery, woodworking, making music, singing,
etc. The Arts were certainly well represented!
Thank you to everyone who came out and joined in the fun. Thanks to
those who brought food for the pot luck, there were some yummy things
on offer! :)
Thanks to everyone who helped move chairs and tables and put them
back. I know the library appreciated that we had the room back in
order well before their closing time.
Thanks to Bojei for hosting the post-revel. :)
Hope you all had a great time! Those who missed it, hope you can make
it to Ayreton Art Academy IV wherever and whenever that may be.
