New Web Site

We are planning to revise and expand our web site this fall.

I received a letter today announcing that the Tennessee Arts Commission will be granting us half the amount needed for this project.

Last month, we received a significant contribution from the Loudoun (VA) Sampler Guild toward the new web site.
