At the April 20 meeting, past president Deb Bayles did a workshop on how to make tubular table runners.  They went together quickly, and many ladies come home and made many more. (See attached photo).  Two tourists from Vancouver British Columbia came to our meeting at the invitation of Norma Madden, who works in the Visitors Center.  They participated in show and tell, with projects they had brought.
