    Bead and Bond Event

    Crafting is the finest way to unwind during a lunch break at work. The Craft and Chat committee organized a Pandora-style bracelet event called “Bead and Bond.” The participants gathered around a table, grabbed their beads and bracelets, and got right to work. The event reminded us of all of our elementary school crafts days as we talked about color-coordinating beads and charms. Some participants crafted two or three bracelets to distribute to friends and loved ones. An hour of crafts was followed by tea, coffee, cookies, and a lovely cranberry cake. It was amazing to put a face on our members, and we all had a great time making…

    Craft & Chat

    It’s hard to believe it is already December! This is a time to get cozy and there is nothing better than sit together and have some fun. This is what IEGAP members decided to do on a Wednesday afternoon. We came for an hour of cookies, coffee and some serious crafting. It was so great to see people meeting in person again and having fun making a macramé.
