Here are some glimpses of our most recent member gathering. We started with a getting-to-know-you activity that had an embedded English lesson in it. The women got some language practice, while also getting to know each other a little better.

This month, the creative focus was on learning colors--including what matches and what clashes. Katrina's excellent lesson also urged the women to consider the many types of patterns that can be made in a piece of jewelry when the creator changes the size of the beads or how they alternate. The women came away with a much clearer understanding of how to plan a design instead of making it up as they go along. A fun and successful day all around!

Feeling crafty?

Our monthly meeting with our crafters is coming up this Saturday, February 19. If you'd like to help us do some jewelry making and merchandise tagging, please stop by!

Emily Griffith Opportunity School
1250 Welton St., Room 118

We're on the east side of the Colorado Convention Center. On Saturdays, you can only enter the building from the center back alley door across from the auto mechanics area. Proceed down the stairs and follow the noise.

Parking might be a challenge! The Colorado Garden & Home Show is going on across the street, and parking spaces will be at a premium. Take public transportation if you can!
