Amanda (wildlifer78), Monroe Area Liaison, recently convo'd me with a link to her blog, where she wrote about the LArtisans Team and the first-ever Monroe LArtisans Meetup held on October 12.
Amanda explains that, "Because we have members from Sterlington, Monroe, West Monroe, Ruston and Columbia, we tried to meet as centralized as possible. The Corner Coffee Cafe housed our first meeting! We plan on moving the meeting spot around to help accommodate members."
The group brought samples of their creations, which included jewelry, children's clothing, and rcolor artwork. Check out Amanda's blog post to views more photos and to read more.
Val (BabySewSweet) said, "I sure had a great time. It was very exiting to meet people who share the love to crafting. I am looking forward to making good friends, share booths at craft shows, and maybe learn something new. I also loved to see what everyone was making, some great stuff."
