It is with heavy heart that we need to cancel the Blizzard book workshop this weekend in Davidson. Kathy’s father has passed away and understand that family and friends are most important at this time. Our thoughts and prayers are with Kathy and Evanna and their family.
This past Sunday February 23, 2019 brought Martha Cole, Gerda Osteneck, Gail Chin and Leann Clifford together for a wonderful day of unwrapping books that have been collected from Saskatchewan books makers to create the showcases for the CBBAG Sask Books Display at the Main Branch of the Regina Public Library.
Thank you to everyone that submitted to the display. The books received were beautiful. Saskatchewan has a very talented community of Book makers, Calligraphers and Embroidery Stitchers.
The show will be available for viewing March 15 to April 30, 2019 at the Regina Public Library Central – 2311 12 Ave, Regina, corner of Lorne St and 12th Ave.
