Learn to( Weave) Twine A Rug

The LDWS Executive wanted to let all of our members know that Boyle Community is Closed due to the Covid -19 situation. So all activities, meetings, and classes will be suspended till further notice. We will be monitoring the timelines and will do our best to keep everyone informed about when we are able to reconvene. If you have registered for a class  there will be some communication coming to discuss future dates. The Executive will be conferencing by phone/email this week to see the scope of the proposed closure. Perhaps this is the time to complete that project you have been setting aside, or get some fresh inspiration from your stash!

Stay Healthy,

Susan Roth
LDWS President, on behalf of the Executive
