Greeting Desk and Historical Display

Karen greeted everyone, explained things, and answered questions. Such as how do I win a door prize? Where do raffle tickets go? Can we eat that food? How do I make out this check?

Periodically we challenge ourselves and do a group project that more or less falls into the arts as opposed to crafts. The "Pittsburghscape" was invented & executed in 2005 and went to the CGOA convention in California that year. Having inspired the book "A Coat of Many Scrumbles", the cape also traveled to the CGOA convention in 2006, where it was photographed with the new cape. Also at the same con was "In the Garden", a wire bra that was entered into a "bra"vo contest. Wooly Dreams can only be termed an adventure into needlefelting; the wool is alpaca fur. Slated for the future? A Slice of Pittsburgh, another wallhanging.
