President's Message

Hello! Hello! Hello!

I just returned home from our fabulous Fiber Get Away which was held in Tarpon Springs this year. It is such a relaxing weekend working on projects, hanging out with cool people, shopping and, of course, eating!

Next year, we will be meeting in St. Augustine.

The brochure for the 2016 Annual Conference is posted!

There are a huge variety classes being offered. My biggest problem is deciding which ones that I want to take and wishing I could clone myself so that I could take several more classes. This mini conference gives one an opportunity to try something new or review and refine skills.
