Fibre Arts – Finishing School Virtual Weekly Drop-in
The Social Committee is happy to promote a weekly fibre arts finishing school for you to attend on a drop-in basis.
Bring your own fibre project to work on in a supportive and social setting. Get tips on your projects from Edith Koprek or help someone else with theirs.
A google meet link will be provided to MRSA members to join every Thursday between 12:30 – 1:30pm. from Sept. 23 – Oct. 28. You will need to be logged in with your mtroyal account to access this Google Meeting.
The Social Committee will revisit our ‘virtual’ events every two months and determine if we can move to an in-person event or continue with virtual due to covid-19 concerns. We foresee this as an ongoing event whether virtual or in-person.
