Hi! Thanks to everyone for attending February’s Get Together. It was so much fun chatting about glass. Welcome to our new members Patsy, Terri, David, and Christina.
Big Kudos to Geneva and Cindy for two awesome demonstrations!! Cindy demonstrated how she creates fish and gave us some fabulous tricks and tips. Geneva demonstrated fusing fish bases 101. For us non-fusers, Geneva’s demo was chock full of information. Thank you once again for sharing your glass knowledge with us!!!

Mark your calendars on March 28th for our next Tampa get together.
