Holiday Potluck, Ornament Exchange and Show 'N Tell
Wednesday, December 3 at 6:30 p.m.
The Lakeshore Fiber Arts Guild invites members of the community who are interested in the guild to attend. You may bring a dish to pass with the appropriate serving utensil. Plates, “silverware,” and beverages will be provided. Wrap your ornament so no one will know who made it. Sign and date the ornament so the recipient will remember who made it in years to come. Everyone who brings an ornament will take home an ornament. For Show ‘n Tell, bring what you’d like to show that you’ve been working on (from summer? for Christmas gifts?).
The Lakeshore Fiber Arts Guild invites anyone interested in the textile fiber arts to their monthly program meetings held the first Wednesday of each month at the Holland Area Arts Council. For more information, visit the guild’s blog at lakeshorefiberartsguild.blogspot.com or contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 616-878-1526.

Participants will enhance their community knowledge, civic network, and leadership abilities and they will accept leadership roles in the community.
