U-GLY Potluck Dinner

This is a potluck party. Arrive at 5:30pm to set up for the potluck. Bring a savory dish. The Board members will handle the sweets and drinks!


There will be NO Mini Workshop.

But first...

The ATC (Artists Trading Cards) will start at 5:30pm. Bring 10 or more ATCs, all made and ready to swap. If you arrive late, not to worry, after the formal swap there will be an informal swap for latecomers and anyone with extra cards.


Remember ATCs are playing card size. If you need to get your muse started, try themes like holidays, flowers, pets ... any theme is good. The only rule is that it must be fiber. That is a broad range: paper, fabric, felt, yarn, wallpaper, paper napkins, etc. Just have fun!


Here are some links online where you can see examples and get how-to info if you need it.


Use Google to find ATCs and you will find tons of information, examples, and You Tube videos. 


Let the U-GLY Holiday Party begin!!!

(u-gly is pronounced you-glee)


The holiday season is the perfect time to let your inner ugly come out! It is DAFA's first "Holiday U-gly Party"!


So, days before the DAFA party, go into your closets (or wherever) and find all those terribly wonderful and wonderfully terrible items that you just haven't the heart to throw away.  


Find, make, and/or decorate your own U-gly item and wear it to DAFA. The Board will give out U-gly awards for the U-gliest items.


It will be a fun time, so be sure to mark "U-gly" on your calendar for Monday, November 28.  


PLEASE NOTE: There will be NO DAFA Meeting in December.
Have a safe and wonderful holiday. See you next year!
