A few months back when the registration opened for SAQA's 2015 International Conference, Fiberlandia, one of our members asked me, "Why should I go to Conference? It seems like a lot of money..."
I will say more in an up-coming newsletter but for now...
|Dinner with Teri Springer (L), Lyric Kinard (next)|

Same dinner -- deep in discussion

|Meeting up with friends|
