Hi,

Our first trunk show was a huge success!  Thank you to Leslie Mayfarth for 
putting it all together and providing the fabric we seldom see here in Albuquerque. 
We would also like to thank the Thai Vegan Restaurant for the excellent hors d'oeuvres
and everyone who came out for the party.  We can't wait to see these gorgeous fabrics 
come back as garments.

Save the Date!  Linda Lee of The Sewing Workshop is presenting her "Pants Fitting 
Workshop", May 3rd and 4th.  This two-day event includes a fitting and construction 
of a pair of pants tailored to your personal shape.  We are still finalizing the
cost and other details, stay tuned.
 
Also coming in May, the Ninth Biennial Fiber Arts Fiesta is happening the 23rd
through the 25th.  The entry deadline is March 1st and any work completed after
