The Faces of Parcel Post - Part 3

There are still a few more people to introduce you to. These participating artists are joining us around the tables of Parcel Post, bringing their independence of spirit and sense of humour.

Please welcome Joyce Dorsett and Margaret Pittillo from UHC Ramseur.

And over at the Grace Martin Harwell Senior Center meet ...

Glenda Barnes

Pat Carlson

A little more about Pat and Glenda ... Glenda makes quilts and Pat creates applique pieces. Both have promised to bring in examples of their work to share with the rest of us. Charles Mason has shared his collages and Zorada Knapp her reclaimed wall paper cards.

The group at Grace Martin is planning to attend the participating artists' reception in May, in fact they're making an overnight adventure out of it!

Faces of Parcel Post - Part 2

It's been awhile since we visited our friends at Autumn Care of Biscoe.

Now that things are back to normal there, it is high time we check in and meet the newest member of their group. Last week's session, kicking off Unit 3 was ushered in with a beautiful snow fall accompanied by Imogene's rendition of 'Let It Snow'.

Let's give a warm welcome to Bill and a big hello to everyone in Biscoe!
