November Workshop For Members

November 5, 2016, Saturday at 1:00 p.m., NVGS Library, 1701 Menlo Ave.,Napa, CA

Program: "Genealogy + Crafting"

Presented by Roxanne Hogan 

(RSVP to Karen Burzdak at  by Nov. 1)

Refreshments will be served to get us in the mood for a little holiday gift-making session.

One table will be devoted to some ideas that member Roxanne Hogan and Karen Burzdak have found to be of inspiration.

The remaining tables will be used for the making a couple of items you could take home:  coasters made from tiles can be customized in many
ways as long as you bring pictures no bigger than 3.5 by 3.5.  Karen has the tiles; you bring your pictures (photocopy and continue to make
smaller until you have a size that fits).  She has one of her home with a map of Mill Valley in the background.

Roxanne will be leading the candle-making session:  candles in a teacup, so bring a tea cup you can part with.

Consider bringing bits of fabric, doilies, other items belonging to your grandmother (for instance).

Two items will be given away as a door prizes.  You do not have to participate to join us.

Photos and stories of Napa County residents would be located there.
